Eyeing a careful return

San Francisco is now in its eighth full week of shelter in place. The most recent projections suggest the national peak in infections is still weeks away, and we might top 3,000 deaths a day. The Bay Area appears to be in better shape, again thanks to quick action from our state and local officials.

We’re awaiting word from state and local officials, the state health department, and our chancellor regarding our return to campus, and, as we wait, we’re developing plans to keep our staff, faculty, and students safe as we reopen.

Any transition demands problem-solving leading to creative solutions. And we must have the flexibility and nimbleness needed to implement those solutions. From our advocacy for the pharmacy profession to our science, clinical work, and education, I’m proud to say our School exhibits these traits every single day in our response to the novel coronavirus.
