UW Cherry Blossom Viewing Canceled Available Via Web Cam
Visitors should avoid coming to UW campus to see cherry blossoms amid COVID-19 outbreak.
Thousands of people usually visit campus each spring to see the cherry blossoms. The university’s order is in compliance with state and local public health proclamations that prohibit gatherings of more than 50 people in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, parking on campus to view the blossoms is discouraged.
A webcam overlooking the Quad is available for viewers to enjoy the trees remotely. Over the coming weeks, the university will share progress photos and videos on the cherry blossoms’ Twitter account,@uwcherryblossom and on UW News.
