The fear and uncertainty that accompanies widespread illness can lead to many reactions. CCC community members may have friends and family overseas who are affected and may 对这种情况感到焦虑或悲伤. 他们也可能会被数量压垮 of media coverage, both through news channels and social media.

As a college community known for caring about each other, this is a time when we all need to be understanding and compassionate to people who may be affected by the news. Also, we should be aware of and avoid broad generalizations and assumptions about 中国和亚洲各国人民. 将亚洲人归类为危险或病态, or making assumptions about a person’s nationality based on their physical appearance reinforces long-standing histories of xenophobia and racism, whether intentional or 不. Please treat all members 我们的社区 with respect and empathy as our college and the entire world deals with this evolving situation.
