East Carolina University Interim Chancellor Ron Mitchelson announced in a letter today that they are moving to online classes, just two weeks after welcoming students back on campus.
"Throughout the summer, we planned and prepared our campus for the Return of Pirate Nation, and more than two weeks ago, we welcomed Pirates back to campus. We’ve completed two weeks of classes in our first eight-week block for the fall semester. However, during the last week we have experienced a rapid acceleration of Covid-19 cases, including multiple clusters,” Mitchelson wrote.
The letter went on to say that undergraduate classes have been suspended Monday and Tuesday of this week. Online classes begin on Aug. 26.
