Covid 19 Resource Announcements


Dear Department of Economics Faculty, Students, Visitors, Predocs, and Staff:

Following University policy restricting building access for faculty and students, the University is planning to lock all campus buildings.  You will no longer be able to access buildings with your Yale ID.  If you have approval from the FAS Dean’s Office to enter a building, you will need to be escorted by Yale Security. 

The University’s policy is consistent with directives from the State of Connecticut and is for the safety of faculty, students, and staff, and that of the broader community, and it is being complied with and enforced across the University.  The FAS Dean’s Office understands that these policies are burdensome and impose hardship and greatly appreciates your cooperation in ensuring their smooth implementation during these extremely stressful and challenging times.

Our buildings (27, 28, 30, 37 Hillhouse) will be locked as of 5PM on Wednesday, March 26.  If you need to get anything from your office, please do so before then.

Thank you and stay well.

Dorothy Ovelar, Administrative Director
Tony Smith, Chair Department of Economics
Yale University

The Governor of Connecticut has issued an order for non-essential business to close their doors by 8:00pm tonight.  This means that you should get any items you may need out of your Yale assigned office by that time.

Per the Governor’s orders, no one may be on campus other than authorized emergency personnel: “Effective at 8PM on Monday, March 23, all workers at non-essential businesses in the state shall work from home.”

What to do if you think you have symptoms of COVID-19. If you feel sick, please check Yale’s COVID-19 website for resources about symptoms and how to contact your healthcare provider.
