UPDATE: Due to the situation regarding COVID-19, this course has been cancelled.
We are sorry to inform you that the New Haven teen’s course scheduled on April 5th will be canceled due to the current situation regarding COVID-19. We are inspired by your interest in attending the teen’s course in New Haven, and we hope to reschedule the course at a later date.
Many universities and schools have closed, states of emergency have been declared, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended social distancing and the avoidance of large gatherings. In addition, Yale closed its campus to public events and large gatherings. Consequently, we decided it was best to cancel the course.
We deeply regret this decision. We have taken it on the recommendation of medical professionals. There are no confirmed cases of COVID‑19 currently at Yale. Nevertheless, our first duty is to protect the health of everyone who would be joining us for the course, and to safeguard the wider community.
We plan to restart courses as soon as we can safely do so.
