As mentioned in the August CLA NOW meeting, please start and continue messaging throughout your units regarding the 10 days the University campus will be closed in late fall 2010. As people are returning to the campus for the start of fall semester, we ask that you communicate widely and frequently about the upcoming closure days, so everyone has plenty of advance notice to plan accordingly. The majority of the units have indicated that no campus activities are planned for during that 10 day period of 12/24/10 - 1/2/11, and CLA administration will follow up with those few areas who might have some required activity related to the health and safety of research subjects.
