As the number of reported cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to rise, women’s fraternities and sororities are increasingly confronted with the implications of university closures and additional consequences from this pandemic. We have and will continue to monitor and share information to help you navigate the uncertainty of COVID-19 and its associated impact on your organization. Contact your Client Executive with any questions and continue to check the MJ Sorority COVID-19 Resource Center for updated information and helpful resources.
Because our resources have become so voluminous, we separated out our resources into specific pages for Chapter Operations, Chapter House, Employment, Insurance Coverage & Financial Considerations, and COVID-19 Webinars and Virtual Offerings.
As this situation is such a dynamic one, information and recommendations have changed from the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020. We have tried to update resources accordingly, but always verify with your Client Executive for our most updated recommendations.
