Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Spain
Update: May 28, 2020
For information about COVID-19 as well as the University’s response in St. Louis, Missouri, please see Saint Louis University’s Health Advisory page.
SLU-Madrid is holding its summer session online. Preparations are underway to open facilities for the Fall 2020 semester, following an adjusted academic calendar and safety protocols responding to COVID-19. In addition, SLU-Madrid faculty are developing online (asynchronous) and remote (synchronous) alternatives for students who may not be able to return to campus due to travel restrictions or health concerns. More information about the academic plans and other preparations will be announced in mid-June.
With the health and safety of our community as our highest priority, SLU-Madrid’s goal is to ensure that registered students will be able to complete their Fall 2020 courses and make progress towards their degrees, whether or not they are able to attend face-to-face classes in Spain.
Spain’s nationwide state of emergency remains in effect through June 7 and may be extended. SLU-Madrid continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Spain and globally. Sources we turn to include information from the city of Madrid (Ayuntamiento de Madrid), the Madrid Province (Comunidad de Madrid), Spain’s National Ministry of Health, the U.S. Embassy in Spain, and the Centers for Disease Control.
