Easing of Measures to Commence Starting April 26

A bit of good news regarding the general situation here in Ticino and  in Switzerland. The Federal government announced a three-step plan to  begin restoring a more normal rhythm, starting at the end of this month.  The rate of new infections has slowed significantly, and the measures  taken to slow the spread of the virus are proving to be effective. While  Franklin students and faculty won’t be able to go back to the classroom  before the end of regular Spring term, we await the decision of the  cantonal authorities regarding our June session.


In the meantime, the current restrictions remain in place: until  April 26, all residents of Ticino need to stay home unless you are going  out for groceries or medicine. Everyone must continue social distancing  and following the norms for hygiene and hand washing. The Canton of  Ticino will communicate additional measures and alleviate some  restrictions next week. For more information on the measures in place  please check the Coronavirus Updates section on the website: www.fus.edu/coronavirus.
