Coping with COVID-19 April 1: Living in Today
Gain understanding of the importance of living in today.
Ohio State continues to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about events and gatherings. On March 15, the CDC recommended that that no large events be scheduled over the next eight weeks (through May 9). The university will continue to evaluate events and will share plans to either end the restrictions early or, if needed, extend them.
Following the CDC's recommendation, Ohio State has postponed spring commencement. The preference is to reschedule for later this spring, but it is premature to select a new date at this time. The university will continue to evaluate information and communicate a decision as soon as possible.
As stated previously, no new non-essential events, gatherings or in-person meetings should be scheduled at this time.
The university is closing the following facilities until further notice:
Thompson, 18th Avenue and all departmental libraries on the Columbus campus are closed. All library services will be provided virtually, and processes for materials access and delivering materials will be shared.

All Columbus campus academic and administrative buildings have closed to public access. Anyone with questions regarding work arrangements should contact their dean, academic advisor, senior leader or manager.
All Ohio State Extension offices will be closed to the public until further notice, and employees will be working remotely.
The university is canceling all undergraduate admissions visits and recruitment events scheduled through early June. More information is available on the Undergraduate Admissions page.
