As the coronavirus continues to spread across the US, schools and universities are starting to end semesters early or conduct classes online instead of in person.
Multiple schools are doing so in Washington state, which has been hardest hit in the nation.
In New York, Columbia University, New York University, Fordham University, and Barnard College have all announced they will start conducting online classes.
Amherst College has decided to end the semester entirely -- classes are canceled this Thursday and Friday, and the university has decreed no students are allowed on campus after March 16. Remote learning will continue after spring break, beginning March 23.
West Coast schools are also taking action -- Stanford, the University of Southern California, and UC San Diego have announced remote learning measures.
Brown University, in Rhode Island, hasn't cancelled classes -- but is taking other measures like canceling all events that have 100 or more attendees.
