With daily developments showing an increase in COVID-19 cases and fatalities, new guidelines from the CDC and state/federal governments, it has become necessary to cancel all April in-person events including MCU’s Graduation Gala.
We have all been called upon to do our part to take proactive steps against the spread of COVID-19 including canceling gatherings of ten or more, engaging in social distancing, and employing high precautions when it comes to travel. We take the Health and Safety of our community very seriously and want to do what we can to safeguard against the further spread of COVID-19. This decision was not made lightly and is informed by guidance from medical professionals, state and national public health officials, and MCU stakeholders.
If you purchased your airfare for Skill Suites, please contact the airline for reimbursement. Review your purchase for cancellation terms. If reimbursement is not an option, some airlines offer a future travel credit instead. Documenting COVID travel concerns including cancellation and change fees, communication logs, and additional details is recommended.
This website provides excellent resources regarding travel changes with major airlines:
If you have already secured lodging, please contact the lodging establishment for a reimbursement or a future travel credit. Terms and conditions vary depending on the vendor used to secure lodging. Documenting fees and communication logs is recommended.
MCU is committed to staying abreast of COVID-19 developments. Please continue to check MCU’s dedicated COVID-19 webpage for updates.
Stay safe and healthy.
