The UC Berkeley Interfraternity Council, or IFC, announced in a statement Wednesday that all IFC events are suspended in response to concerns about COVID-19, the new coronavirus, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

According to IFC Vice President of Risk Management Kelly Schulte, IFC events including social, philanthropy and fundraising, among others, have been suspended through March 29. Schulte added that IFC will continue to monitor the situation to determine whether to adjust the length of the suspension.

“With the onset of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and as local, national, and global public health recommendations shift to include mitigating the transmission of the virus, the Interfraternity Council is proactively taking steps that will help to protect the community,” Schulte said in the statement.
