Coronavirus: The health of the UMB community is our top priority

February 10, 2020


At this time, there have been no confirmed cases of the novel (new) coronavirus (2019-nCoV) at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). The website below is intended to provide our students, faculty, staff, and visitors with the latest information about the outbreak, measures implemented to reduce its spread, and the impact on travel and other activities. 


UMB officials are actively monitoring the situation and will make every effort, working in conjunction with federal, state, and local health authorities, to provide information and implement policies intended to ensure the continued health and safety of our community.


As a reminder, avoid making assumptions about individuals who you believe may or may not have come into contact with someone who is carrying the virus. In some cases, public reactions to the virus have been sensationalized, and there have been individuals at institutions of higher education who reported encountering discrimination and harassment due to biased assumptions and overreactions. We treasure our international community members, students of color, and everyone who may be affected by this situation. We want to remind all members of our community to embody UMB’s Core Values of diversity and civility by providing understanding and support during this evolving situation.
