COVID-19: Message to MU students and scholars from China

Jan. 31, 2020

Dear international students and scholars,

We’re reaching out to let you know we share your concerns for family, friends and colleagues in the People’s Republic of China due to the recent outbreak of the coronavirus in Wuhan, China. Fortunately, at MU and in Missouri, there have not been any confirmed cases of the coronavirus at this time. Nevertheless, the impact of this virus is not only on those directly infected or at risk of exposure, but also on those of us who have family and friends living in affected areas.

Therefore, we want to remind you that if you need help, know that we’re here to support you. Please reach out to us! There are many resources across campus that can possibly help alleviate the anxiety or stress that you may be feeling. Take a few minutes to consider the following resources available to you and contact them if you need help:

Thank you and please know that we care deeply for all of our international faculty, staff and students and are working hard to support your safety and success at Mizzou.
