Positive COVID-19 case; Immediate steps to reduce community exposure

Dear Brown Community:

We are writing with important information about COVID-19 and implications for the Brown campus community. Unfortunately, the situation around the country and at Brown is becoming more difficult each day. The University has learned that yesterday, for the first time, a member of our community tested positive for novel coronavirus. Brown students and employees who were in contact with the diagnosed individual have been notified directly by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), which provides guidance on health considerations and quarantine.

Supporting your student's departure from campus

Dear Brown Parents and Families,

As the impact of novel coronavirus continues to escalate, we know this is a tremendously challenging time for families - both for your students at Brown and for all of you as well. Our foremost concern is the health and well-being of our entire University community, and we continue to follow the guidance of medical experts on and beyond campus.
