Touro University Nevada Extends Campus Closure Due to COVID-19

Dear TUN Campus Community:

With the Governor’s imposed Stay At Home for Nevada executive order set to expire on April 30th, we have begun to receive inquiries about the status of reopening the Touro University Nevada campus.

Our current status has not changed, and we do not have plans to reopen the campus on April 30. Any decision we make relative to reopening will be dictated by the plans which will be put in place by Nevada’s Governor and our state’s health professionals.  We anticipate the Governor will be announcing his timeline for reopening Nevada in the coming days, and based on his plans we will then address what the reopening of Touro Nevada looks like.

As such, although the April 30 deadline is quickly approaching, the campus community – students, faculty, and staff – should not plan for nor anticipate returning to campus by that date.  We will be outlining a detailed plan in the near future and will be providing a minimum of two (2) weeks’ notice prior to bringing anyone back to campus for instruction/classes.  More information will be provided as it becomes available.

For the time being, we thank you for your continued commitment and focus on remote learning and business operations. We know everyone looks forward to the day when we can all return to campus but for now we must all remain vigilant in following the Governor’s Stay Home for Nevada order.

Please stay safe and healthy.
