    Dear Participants:

    While there are currently no reported or confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Marywood University or in Lackawanna County at this time, the situation is rapidly changing. Please refer marywood.edu/coronavirus for updates to our response and actions related to COVID-19.

    Out of an abundance of concern for all members of the Marywood University family, and to hopefully impair the spread of this virus, Marywood University has made the decision to postpone the events below.

    The health and safety of our campus community remains our highest priority, and therefore we must continue to prepare for the possibility of COVID-19 affecting our region. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to monitor the situation and make decisions guided by our Mission and Core Values. We also understand your concern for your own personal safety and for the safety of your loved ones.
