Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Page for the PAFA Community

The PAFA administration is closely monitoring the global and local situation with regard to the 2019 coronavirus disease, COVID-19, including advisories from the WHO, CDC, and local authorities.

PAFA’s first priority is the safety of its community—including students, faculty, and staff—as well as visitors to PAFA’s museum, events, and programs. We all have a collective responsibility to mitigate the spread of this disease and protect those most vulnerable.

We have launched a comprehensive page with updated information for every member of the PAFA community in response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, including any changes to PAFA’s usual operations. We greatly appreciate your partnership in this important and urgent effort.
