The University of California Berkeley has suspended most of their in-person classes as a proactive measure to protect their campus from coronavirus.
In a letter sent to the campus community today, Chancellor Carol Christ said the changes will begin Tuesday and will remain in effect through spring break, which ends on March 29.
All lectures courses, seminar instruction and exams will be offered through virtual options. Courses that must meet in person such as labs, performing arts or physical education are encouraged to minimize their in-person meetings.
Campus-sponsored events with than 150 attendees will be canceled or postponed.
According to the letter, the school will continue to monitor the latest coronavirus information and make a decision at a later date about what will happen on March 30 and beyond.
Christ stressed there are no confirmed cases on the campus at this time.
