Postponed - Alumni Reunion 2020
Austen Riggs Center
IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT: 2020 ALUMNI REUNION POSTPONED.
In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation and following consultation with the Alumni Reunion co-chairs, senior leadership, our Medical Office, and local public health professionals, I made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Alumni Reunion.
The clinical care, health, and safety of our patients is our top priority. While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campus, Governor Baker has declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts to mitigate spread of the virus. We are taking all necessary precautionary measures to protect patients and staff and minimize risk of spreading the virus. These include the cancellation of a number of Austen Riggs Center external events through the end of April, 2020. In the coming days, you can read more about our response to the virus on our website: www.austenriggs.org/covid19.
With more than 80 people registered, deferring the Alumni Reunion is a major disappointment to us all. We are committed to rescheduling this important event as soon as it is safe to do so, and will be in touch with alumni when we know more.
