Johns Hopkins University’s goal remains to resume its suspended on-campus activities to the greatest extent possible as soon as is prudent.

We have developed guidelines for a phased resumption of research, instruction, and other activities in a manner that puts the health and safety of our community at the forefront.

“The challenge ahead of us will require our utmost imagination and adaptability, as well as patience with and compassion for each other. We have no doubt that we will, yet again, forge a path forward that not only sets a high bar but ensures that all of us clear it together. We are truly grateful to each of you for helping us navigate this important moment for Johns Hopkins.”

President Ronald J. Daniels and Provost Sunil Kumar

Community feedback

Your input is crucial—we want to hear from you. In addition to our formal task force working groups, we have created multiple avenues for community engagement, including a 20-member student advisory committee and a series of town halls and forums to discuss the guidelines for resuming on-campus activity.

You can also share comments and suggestions about the resumption of on-campus activities at anytime.
