2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID 19) is a newly identified coronavirus that can cause potentially fatal pneumonia. The worldwide and rapid spread of the virus has lead the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare the transmission of COVID-19 a pandemic.  While South Korea has been able to reduce the spread of COVID-19, there remains some transmission of the virus in the country.  There have been no cases at Mason Korea.

Mason Korea takes everyone's safety with utmost seriousness and continues to follow the recommendations of the public health authorities, the Korean Ministry of Education, and the U.S. embassy regarding measures to protect the health and safety of our entire community of students, faculty, and staff.

You can do your part to protect the Mason and the greater community by practicing social distancing in everyday life.

This is a rapidly changing situation. This page will be updated as additional guidance becomes available from public health officials and others.
