As many of you are aware, campus leadership has been carefully monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). You can find the most up-to-date information at https://covid19.wisc.edu/. In response to directives that have been issued from our campus leadership, Discovery to Product (D2P) offices will be closed to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17 through at least Friday, April 10. This is a rapidly evolving situation and we will continue to share updates with you as they are available. Discovery to Product’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our staff, campus colleagues, and families. As our community monitors and reacts to this unprecedented health emergency, we want to make you aware of steps that Discovery to Product (D2P) is taking to ensure the continuity of our programs while continuing to protect the health of our community and do everything possible to prevent illnesses and spread of the virus.
