Our campus has been closed since March 13, 2020. However, in light of declining rates of infection in the Bay Area, along with increased availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, we are planning on holding our upcoming August 2021 cohort in person. Based on recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local health departments in regard to COVID-19, we are taking the following steps to mitigate the risk to our community:
When will your campus be open again?
We plan to resume in person instruction starting with our August 23, 2021 cohort.
What's happening with your online program?
Nothing! We plan on continuing to offer an online program for people who want to attend Rithm but will not be in the Bay Area.
What precautions will you take to ensure the safety of your campus?
We will do everything we can to minimize the risk of illness once we resume in-person instruction. In particular, all staff will be fully vaccinated, and the campus will not be open to anyone other than staff and students enrolled in our full-time program. We will require anyone attending our in person program to show proof of vaccination. We will also provide hand sanitizer and take other reasonable precautions to minimize the risk of contracting or transmitting COVID-19.
What about free events?
Any free events we host for the larger community will be held online only until further notice.
We look forward to re-opening our campus soon. In the mean time, please stay healthy, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
