Multiple colleges and universities in Maryland and DC are beginning to take precautions to stem the concern over the spread of the Coronavirus.
American University says they are extending spring break through March 17th and are moving all classes online afterwards until at least April 3rd.
The Washington College of Law says they will also switch to all online classes from March 23rd to April 3rd.
In addition, the University System of Maryland is asking all of its schools to employ similar measures and to move students off-campus following spring break for at least two weeks and to prepare to be able to teach remotely.
Towson University has already canceled all university classes for the rest of the week starting March 10th and is preparing to switch to an all-remote system after spring break. They say that nine students and one staff member at the school are in self-quarantining after attending a conference in DC where two people in attendance tested positive for Coronavirus.
