Dear SPH Community,
As you have now likely heard, Brown is preparing to resume in-person operations by Monday, August 16. Please be on the lookout for further details as logistics become finalized. We are working with the University Planning and SPH Center Administrative Staff on planning logistics for the return to work.
We cannot wait to be back on campus with you this Fall!
Of course, you are all integral to making on-campus activity possible. We want to again extend our sincere gratitude for not only your ongoing work throughout the pandemic, but also for doing your part in getting vaccinated by the University's July 1 deadline.
As a way of saying "thanks" and to celebrate our community's vaccination efforts, we are happy to announce that Friday, July 2 will be a half-day for the School, with offices closing by noon EDT. It's just one small token of SPH leadership's appreciation of your dedication, and we hope it helps you get a head start on the long Fourth of July weekend and enjoy fun -- and safe! -- summer activities as the country continues to "re-open."
