The impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Seattle thus far is immense, and the University of Washington has been making changes as quickly as possible.

The university was one of the first in the state to move classes from in-person to remote. They were also the first in the country to implement a drive-thru coronavirus testing clinic.

The University of Washington is also now one of the first in Seattle to set up a live camera, allowing those practicing self-distancing measures to enjoy the beauty of the blooms while staying safe indoors.

Those wanting to keep updated on the blossoms can do so below, on UW Video’s webcam, Facebook, or on a Twitter page dedicated to the blossoms.

In the spring, the university typically welcomes thousands of people hoping to catch a glimpse of the magnificent cherry blossoms.

This year, the university is asking people to avoid coming to campus and is discouraging visitors from parking on campus.
