Qatar’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak continues in order to effectively prevent the spread of the infection. In light of this:
- CMU-Q will begin its fall semester as planned on August 23. After much consideration, we have decided to begin the Fall 2020 semester in online mode. While some pandemic restrictions are beginning to lift in Qatar, it is necessary that we take a cautious approach to resuming classes and work in the building. When it is safe to do so, we will shift into a hybrid mode, with classes held partially in-person.
- The building is closed to students, as well as faculty and staff.
- For any further questions regarding building access, please reach out to Facilities.
- A reminder that if you are planning to travel, please contact Human Resources. For staff, please also contact your supervisor. Faculty members should notify both Dean Selma and your program director or area head.
- Until further notice, Education City has closed facilities, including the Student Center and the Qatar National Library. At this time, there have also been some gate closures to Education City. Qatar Foundation is providing regular updates.
- Face masks are required for all citizens and residents when outside of the home.
- Effective May 22, all citizens and residents are obligated to install the coronavirus tracking app Ehteraz when outside of the home.
The Qatar Ministry of Public Health is updating the public regularly on COVID-19, as well as the measures Qatar is taking to protect the community.
