Harvard moving all classes online due to escalating coronavirus concerns

Stanford University has informed students that beginning Monday, classes will be held online for the remainder of the winter quarter because of the growing spread of the new coronavirus.

Vanderbilt University announced it has canceled classes for the rest of the week and will suspended all in-person classes and move to alternative learning options through March 30 due to COVID-19.

"San Diego State University students see that it is vital for us to take precautions for our health and wellbeing as it is a priority especially at this critical time", says the petition.

The US government has refrained from imposing an official ban so the often privately run institutions are each grappling with how best to deal with the fast-moving outbreak.

While Towson is closing classes across all campuses this week in order to prepare for a potential move online after their spring break, Salisbury, UMBC and American University announced they definitively planned to move classes online through at least April 3.

The university, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, asked its 36,000 graduate and undergraduate students not to return to campus after the spring recess and to continue studying remotely "until further notice".

Classes with 150 or more students will move online, starting this week, it added.

In addition, all University-sponsored student and employee travel, both worldwide and domestic, scheduled for March 16 through April 3 will be canceled unless approved by senior administrators.

Classes are suspended for Monday, March 16, and Tuesday, March 17.
