Cornell Food Science Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

Cornell University is closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The health, safety and well-being of our community is our top priority, and we are working closely with local and state public health officials to maintain these. Cornell has decided to take a series of proactive measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including the move to remote work for all employees, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice.

As a result, we will be limiting the services provided by the Department of Food Science, effective immediately. All in-person meetings and workshops are postponed until further notice. We expect to be available by phone and email during this time. Services that can be performed without the need of laboratory support will continue. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, as we know this is already a challenging time for you all. Please refer to the IFS Website for up-to-date information.

Please stay safe, and we will continue to support you to the best of our ability!
