Thousands of people usually visit campus each spring to see the cherry blossoms. The University is asking people to avoid coming to campus this year to comply with orders by Public Health – Seattle and King County and Gov. Jay Inslee that prohibit gatherings of more than 50 people as our region combats the spread of COVID-19.

Additionally, parking on campus to view the blossoms is discouraged.
