The severe weather policy for Duke University and Duke University Health System will be extended until 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13.

Classes will be cancelled all day and evening Thursday, and only a few select Duke clinics previously notified will be open tomorrow. Patients who were scheduled for appointments on Thursday have been notified accordingly to the clinic status.

Duke officials will continue to monitor weather forecasts and communicate updates as conditions warrant.

All staff in “Essential Service” positions should report to work or remain at work. Gates on parking garages will be open for use by staff in “Essential Service” positions when the severe policy is in effect. Members of the Duke community should only use priority roads, walkways and parking lots or garages during winter weather to reduce the potential for accidents and injuries. All employees “Delayed Service” positions should not report to work or remain at work when the policy is in effect to allow for crews to clear parking lots and roads more effectively.

Ongoing updates about events and campus operations, including roads, parking lots, busing routes, dining facilities and Duke stores, will be posted on the DukeALERT website.
