Graduate School Coronavirus Information

March 13, 2024

The CDC recently changed its COVID-19 guidance. The CDC simplified its community recommendations because many people have developed immunity through vaccines and past infections. Also, updated vaccines and treatments are available, and fewer hospitalizations and deaths related to COVID-19 are happening.

According to the new CDC recommendations, COVID-19 may now be treated like other respiratory viruses, such as the flu and RSV.

The University Health Center (UHC) has updated its website to reflect the new CDC recommendations, and we encourage you to update any remaining COVID-19 information on your departmental websites to reflect these changes. The UHC’s HEAL line will continue to be available to answer questions from our students, faculty, staff and campus community.

The University of Maryland is actively monitoring the outbreak of a respiratory illness called COVID-19, caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. Very rapidly, the disease has been detected in numerous countries, including the United States. The University's Coronavirus Information page offers broad guidance for responding to this health concern, and includes all communications for your reference. 

Our main concern at the Graduate School is the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, staff, and the larger campus community. 

We know that graduate students may have specific concerns about continued academic progress. Please know that we are striving to make it possible for you to complete courses, continue assistantships and research, defend theses and dissertations, and complete degrees without delay. Please see our FAQ page for more guidance. We will update it as needed to reflect the most timely and accurate information.

Most importantly, continue to practice healthy habits to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing. With the support of the whole campus community, we will successfully navigate this evolving situation.
