Statement from Davis & Elkins College Regarding COVID-19

Dear Davis & Elkins College Students, 学院, Staff, and Community:

In our capacity as an educational institution, we have always operated on the premise of two distinct priorities: to provide top educational opportunities and to provide a safe and healthy environment. The circumstances of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) have evolved quickly across the United States and around the world, and now require us to make changes to the operation of Davis & Elkins College. We make these changes wholeheartedly with those two priorities in mind.

The mindful watch of COVID-19 by D&E’s Emergency Response Team has been non-stop, and we have followed protocols set forth by the 疾病预防与控制中心 (CDC),该 卫生,人力资源的西弗吉尼亚部门伦道夫县卫生局. As a result of the rapid evolution of this virus, we are announcing the following functional changes at D&E:

  • 所有的课外和课外活动(包括但不限于田径,音乐会,演讲,和社交活动)将被立即暂停。  

  • 所有课程将于周一,3月16日。

  • Registration & Assessment Day on Tuesday, March 17, will proceed as scheduled.

  • 所有类将被取消周三到周五,3月18日至20日,作为网络教育的转变会发生。

  • As of Monday, March 23, D&E will begin online delivery of all course content until further notice.

  • 该学院将继续工作,和所有教职员工预计报告如常。

 

Currently there are no known COVID-19 cases in West Virginia, but the rapid spread of the virus and its potential implications on the D&E Community are undeniable. The Davis & Elkins College Board of Trustees and College leadership believe this series of decisions is in the best interests of our students, faculty, staff, and community. We have not arrived at these decisions lightly or without much deliberation and thought. Our goal is to deliver on our educational mission while doing everything we can to keep our community safe. 

Public health authorities have stated that we should assume the virus will eventually reach our community, so our decisions are designed to minimize the impact of this illness. In an effort to discourage the challenges of many people being affected by the virus at once, public health authorities are also advising the practice of “social distancing.” It then became incumbent upon us to look for ways to eliminate the need for students, faculty, staff, and community to congregate, thus, decreasing the opportunities for the virus to be introduced on the D&E Campus.
