So sorry to any M4s at those schools (and it's ok to be upset)
Im sad.
My graduation and post-graduation travel plans are going to go next. Once in a lifetime trip planned that if cancelled i wont be able to take until after residency because (most, if any program) will allow me two week’s vacation

Our after party was cancelled. Nothing else has been announced but we all know it will be as long as Philly has places to accommodate people.

(i live in the suburbs and much of the county is being locked down and closed up)

Which is the correct response honesty. You all should be thinking about your parents, grandparents, and literally everyone you interact with and staying away from large gatherings. Our departments have effectively cancelled all didactics, grand rounds, chair conferences, etc. to stretch out the spread. That's the only way we prevent having to make the types of decisions Italian docs are making right now.

Exactly. Closures and cancellations are not really entirely about US, it’s about our elderly family and community as a whole...

It’s not as if we arent..
We’re still allowed to be upset by this.

I was never excited about graduation. For me, in these last four years, Match day was going to be the culmination of my med school experience with graduation being more for my family than me. Now, with our Match celebrations effectively cancelled and with graduation on the chopping block, I'm already feeling nostalgic for what could have been. Is that even possible? It's incredibly sad to know that I may never see the rest of my class all together one last time before we all get scattered by the winds. Don't get me wrong, there are several people in my class I do not like and even more I am indifferent about. But that's beside the point. This was to be our last reunion while we were all in the same place at the same time.

To paraphrase @ciestar, we can be worried about Covid19 and also be sad about Match day celebrations being canceled. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Continues to go to clinical rotations daily. Sees pts with essentially every communicable disease, including covid. Goes home to family.
Is told we can’t gather for match day so we don’t expose our family to covid.
Like I get it... but I don’t get it.
Afterthought...since Match day is seemingly cancelled for the whole country, why doesn’t NRMP just freaking tell us on Monday!!??

because, they need Monday to Friday to work with unmatched students.
Lots of Match Day events are still happening with students-only in attendance.

Ive seen plenty of posts implying it.
The post you quoted literally was just saying that canceling large gatherings was what needs to happen. That doesn’t imply you shouldn’t be upset. You absolutely should. It’s a huge milestone and I’m sad for you.

If mine was one of the implying ones, it wasn’t meant to imply. To be clear.

Also just got an email from school, apparently CS is cancelled for the next 3 weeks.

We have residents, friends, family, who have all had to cancel trips that in some cases they've been waiting years for. There's nothing wrong with being sad, but having after parties anyway is a problem and should be discouraged.

I've even seen residents planning "Covid parties", which is not only tone deaf but truly runs the risk of putting people in danger.

Be sad, absolutely, you have every right to be. Just don't let that emotion cloud what's in the best interests of you, your families, and your neighbors.
