Changes for the Spring 2020 Semester

 

Posted March 12 updated March 19:

All Classes & Events Suspended Beginning March 16

OLLI’s Board of Trustees decided to suspend the remaining OLLI spring and intersession classes and events beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.

The Board’s action is intended to protect OLLI members from potential threats to their health by the spread of the coronavirus, particularly given that OLLI’s members as a group appear to be at greater risk for this disease than any other age group.

OLLI and CSUF facilities will not be available for in-person classes, events or meetings.  The Cal State Fullerton campus will remain functioning, but the campus is closed to anyone age 65 or older.  If you have any business with the OLLI office, please email the office at olli-info.@fullerton.edu .  Due to a March 15, 2020 CSUF posting, the OLLI office will be closed until further notice and staff will be working from home.  Note the Frequently Asked Questions bulletin below.  

The Board is developing remote technology solutions, such as internet streaming and Zoom video conferencing, for possible use beginning summer 2020 or sooner.

No decision was made regarding summer session classes, except the Board will continue to monitor the effects of the coronavirus and its ongoing impact on OLLI.

Here is a link PDF File to the OC Emergency Operations Center press release on March 19 anouncing that the Office on Aging will assist seniors with linkages to food and more to help prevent food insecurity.  You can call (800) 510-2020 for assistance.
