Without any knowledge of the lifespan of the Covid-19 threat or the assurance of when these University policies will be lifted, we do not have alternative plans for in-person gatherings at this time. As the national safety situation improves, we will keep everyone posted about future plans for in-person reunions which have been lost, which we have every intention to host once it is safe to do so.
