KAUST Response 
to SARS-CoV-2

The University's priority is the health and safety of its students, faculty, staff, and community. University leadership are proactively monitoring the path of the growing pandemic and are working closely with various Saudi Ministries, as well as taking all precautions recommended by the World Health Organization.
We have an opportunity, even an obligation, as a university of science and technology, to try to make our contributions to tackle this global crisis. I believe that science has a central role to play in this.
