Harvard President Tests Positive

Dear Researchers and Scholars around the world,

This is an unusually difficult time for our planet. Higher education is experiencing its topsy-turvy moment.

Lawrence S. Bacow, the President of Harvard University is tested positive for COVID-19, and so is his wife. What can we learn from President Lawrence is that we need to be upfront about it. Because the virus passes on from one person to another during the incubation period of about two weeks, we have to be extremely careful to keep our community safe.

As we wish President Lawrence and his wife a quick recovery, we ask our colleagues to stay informed and keep safe.
