COVID-19 Guidance for the ColumbiaDC Community
As the COVID-19 epidemic continues to spread around the world and here in the Washington Metro Area, we are vigilantly monitoring the evolving situation and taking preventative measures to ensure the health and well-being of our Columbia community. However, these unprecedented times also call for unprecedented action.
As such, the CAA, out of an abundance of caution, has decided to postpone and/or cancel all events worldwide through April 30 to adhere to the critical recommendation of Social Distancing. This deadline is being reviewed and may be extended depending on changing circumstances and there will be an updated direction for programming, which will be communicated on a periodic basis.
We have communicated postponement or cancellation of our scheduled programs and will continue to do so as necessary. Currently, there is an unrestricted cancellation policy for RSVPS of all ColumbiaDC-executed events.
The situation remains everchanging and as we continue to receive guidance from Columbia University / Columbia Alumni Association as well as state and local authorities, we will continue to keep our community informed as best we can. Additionally, further information for our Columbia DC community on the COVID-19 situation in the DC area and beyond can be found at the following links:

We hope everyone is staying clean and healthy through these trying times. We understand that our quality of life may be impacted for some time to come but we look forward to returning in the Spring one way or another with engaging events and continuing to bring our ever-resilient community together.
