Dallas…“Stay Home Stay Safe”

Dear Texas Woman’s Community:

This is my second message today, which speaks to the rapid rate of change as communities respond to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier today, Dallas County Judge Jenkins issued a “Stay Home Stay Safe” order effective March 23, 2020, at 11:59 pm. We will, therefore, close our Dallas campus at that time. This order will impact those living within Dallas County who would otherwise commute to our other campuses. As some of you may hurriedly access your offices on Monday to obtain items needed while you shelter in place, please remember the rules of social distancing.

Although this notice has not given us much response time, I am grateful that so many are ahead of the curve. Your work is now paying off. As always, please contact your supervisors with any questions or concerns that these new changes pose.

I will end by sending my warmest wishes to stay well and persevere through these rapid changes.

Kindest regards,

Carine M. Feyten, Ph.D.
Chancellor and President
