SUPERIOR, WI-- UW-Superior announces Wednesday they will be extending spring break as well as halting on-campus classes due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
According to the release, spring break will be the week of March 16-29. During this time, students are being asked to be away from campus if possible.
On March 30, classes will resume using an 'alternate delivery mode', which involves holding classes online instead of on-campus.
Campus officials say the first possible date face-to-face classes would resume is April 13. The emergency response team will assess safety and risk between now and then and release an update by April 8.
Officials say the campus is safe and there are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the region. However, because COVID-19 is spreading rapidly elsewhere they want to take proper precautions.
