Information about the COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly, and it is crucial that we all pay close attention to the latest updates. 

In a video message to all members of the Duke community, President Vincent Price discusses how the university is navigating the current public health emergency while continuing its critical work of teaching, learning, discovery and caring for the health of our community.
