SAINT VINCENT COLLEGE ANNOUNCES COVID-19 ACTIONS
LATROBE, PA – Saint Vincent College president Father Paul R. Taylor, O.S.B., has announced that the College will suspend face-to-face classes for a period of two weeks, effective Friday, March 13, while all College-sponsored, on-campus events through April 1 are canceled.
Per Father Paul’s announcement:
The College administration will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 and will provide updates to the Saint Vincent community as they are available.
“Over the past two weeks,” said Father Paul, “we have continually acted in the best interest of our campus community when it comes to COVID-19. Be it canceling the spring break trip to Rome, implementing enhanced precautions to guard against the potential spread of the virus or enacting strict protocols restricting travel, each decision has been made with the health and safety of everyone at Saint Vincent in mind. In each instance, our campus has shown remarkable strength and adaptability.”
At present, there are no suspected cases of COVID-19 on campus. The College will continue to maintain strict adherence to the advisories and guidelines from the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and state and local departments of health.
