What is the current situation at Bradley during this historic event?

Effective March 18, 2020, and with the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and the larger community in mind, the university has made the decision to move all classes for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester to an online format. Complete details and updates are available in the communications section.

All employees have transitioned to an alternate workplace scenario, other than those personnel necessary to keep Bradley running and those who have prior approval from their supervisor to work in their offices.

In addition, Bradley has cancelled the formal spring Commencement program scheduled for Saturday, May 16, and all related events. The university is looking at plans to celebrate graduates’ accomplishments in a meaningful way.

What if I feel ill?

If you’re feeling ill, please take the usual steps of caring for yourself and contacting your health care provider if you believe it’s necessary. Do not attend class or go to work if you are contagious. If you miss class or work due to illness, please work with your instructor or supervisor on arrangements.

If you develop symptoms and have traveled outside the country within 14 days, call your health provider in advance. Please do not show up at a clinic or health facility without calling first. Your provider will need to take special measures to protect others in the clinic.

If you haven’t traveled to (or been in contact with someone who has traveled to) one of the countries in question, but you have respiratory illness plus a fever, you could have the flu or another virus. Please contact Health Services or your health care provider.

Answers to additional questions can be found at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
