I encourage you to review the information above and to continue practicing social and physical distancing to keep yourself, your friends, and your family safe. Please act to break the chain of transmission, as older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for more serious complications from COVID-19. Please continue to monitor the FIU homepage for virus updates, www.fiu.edu, as well as the Center For Disease Control and Prevention, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html
I am here to assist you and answer any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
