UCI Beall Applied Innovation suspends on-site services

Section 1

March 17, 2020

Dear Cove Friends,

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy as we continue to navigate this health crisis. The last few days have remarkably changed the way we do business and engage as a community. The Cove – designed to be a collaborative and public gathering space – has closed its public operations out of an abundance of caution and in line with current best practices for public spaces. We expect to reopen on April 6, 2020.

All programming in the Cove is suspended and on-site services will not be available. Our diligent Beall Applied Innovation team is now online and working from home, available to offer support and information via phone or video meeting. We have asked our Wayfinder startup teams and Cove partner tenants to also work remotely.

UCI’s priority remains the health and welfare of the campus and community members at large and the Cove’s actions are similar to our schools and research centers. For the most current campus updates and other resources, you can visit uci.edu/coronavirus. This website is refreshed throughout each day.

We’re all adjusting to what is hopefully a very short-term “new normal”. Our efforts to support the modern American Dream and regional economic vitality will be needed more than ever once this moment passes. Though we may be practicing social distancing, we look forward to remaining digitally connected for now, continuing our work of fueling new innovations and opportunities. Thank you for your continued support.

Stay Healthy,
UCI Beall Applied Innovation Staff
