VU at MetroWest is still open to the public; however, all public events have been cancelled or postponed and the number of people that can attend meetings on site is limited. Please note that the kitchen is closed and cannot currently be used.
Extra cleans are taking place and the concierge is sanitising surfaces on a regular basis throughout the day.
We are closely monitoring the unfolding COVID-19 situation and following VU protocols as new information is communicated. This may result in short notice for the closure of VU at MetroWest to the public – the safety and wellbeing of all visitors is top priority and we will do what ever is required to ensure this.
