- The Davidson Institute south Reno office is currently closed. All team members will continue to work remotely during this time. Phone correspondence is limited, and email is the best way to get in contact with our team.
- As the coronavirus (COVID-19) expands across the country and globe, the Davidson Institute and the University of Nevada, Reno are closely monitoring recommendations from authorities and experts in science and health. This includes the U.S. Department of State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the American Camp Association, and the University of Nevada, Reno.
- It is too early to predict what type of impact the coronavirus will have on programs and events hosted by the Davidson Institute this summer. To keep participants and families informed, we will continue to update this webpage with information as it become available. We will contact registered families with more detailed, program-specific information by email.
- We encourage families with participants enrolled in Davidson Summer Programs to:
- monitor local travel restrictions, as well as the U.S. State Department website, for updates;- consider travel insurance should you need to cancel or change plans; - check-in with your airline closer to time of travel to ensure you are aware of any related protocols and information
- Participant health and safety remains a top priority. Since our participants reside in close communities, Davidson Summer Programs have always taken great care in developing practices and protocols to address illness and communicable diseases, both common and rare. We will continue to inform these practices and procedures from public health authorities.
- In the event that our summer programs (STARS, REACH, and THINK) need to be canceled due to the coronavirus, we will issue full refunds to families enrolled. The refunds would include any deposit and tuition that has been paid.
