To the University of Miami Community:

Earlier this evening, the City of Coral Gables issued a “safer at home” order, effective at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, that requires residents and businesses to restrict non-essential activities.

Here is guidance regarding University operations:

The order does not impact online learning.
  • All online classes will continue to meet as normal and course schedules will not change.
The order does not impact critical University operations, employee work arrangements, or research functions.
  • Last week, the University implemented new Human Resources policies that are consistent with this city order. As Human Resources communicated last week, only critical operations that need to be performed on-site, certain student contact activities, and teaching-related support, should be performed on campus. All other functions should be performed from home whenever possible.
Students should continue to practice social distancing and limit mobility.
  • The order strongly urges individuals to remain in their place of residence, with limited exceptions. The order does allow travel to grocery stories, pharmacies, banks, gas stations, and other operations critical to day-to-day activities. Individuals may engage in outdoor physical activities, as long as social distancing practices are observed.
  • Dining Services will continue to provide take-out food service. The latest details regarding available dining options and hours of operations can be found at
The complete City of Coral Gables order can be found here.
