Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

April 1, 2020

Dear members of the WCFIA community,

The Weatherhead Center is following Harvard University’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As a Center focused on international relations, we are acutely aware of the importance of this issue. We ask all community members and units to do the following:

We expect this will be temporary, and we will get through it. We also recognize the need for some human interaction as our opportunities for face-to-face communication decrease. We can do this in creative ways, and we want to be part of the solution!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Executive Director Ted Gilman ( or other Weatherhead Center staff members. Staff are currently working from home, and are available via email

Warm thanks,

Melani Cammett
