City-Wide Curfew 10/28 @ 9 p.m.

Dear Campus Community,
 
The City of Philadelphia has issued a city-wide curfew which will go into effect on Wednesday, October 28 at 9:00 p.m. through 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 29. 

All on-campus dining areas, including Wilson Cafeteria and TastyDrakes/Starbucks, will be closing at 8 p.m. today (10/28) and reopening with regular hours starting tomorrow (10/29) morning.

Essential personnel are excluded from this curfew, but any employees traveling after 9 p.m. should be prepared to show documentation of this status.
 
Department of Public Safety is monitoring protest activities in Philadelphia with the Philadelphia Police Department and our other University City partners and will share urgent information as needed through our Department of Public Safety Emergency Text Messaging, the Department of Public Safety Emergency Blog, and email. While there are no known events planned in Clark Park or immediately adjacent to campus, there is always the possibility that protests can expand and migrate to our area.
