OU Suspends In-person Classes After Confirmed Ohio Coronavirus Cases

The suspension will last until March 30

With the first three cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) confirmed in Ohio on Monday, Ohio University announced today (Tuesday) that it would join several other Ohio colleges in suspending in-person instruction in classes. OU's suspension, for now, will last till March 30.

OU President Duane Nellis said in a message this afternoon to the campus community that while OU's campuses will remain open, all university-related travel is suspended, and students are asked not to return to campus from spring break. Nellis reported that in-class instruction will be suspended, and classes will be taught through a "virtual instruction environment," until March 30.

"All students who traveled home over spring break are encouraged to stay at home, and those who were traveling over spring break are also asked not to return to campus during this timeframe," Nellis wrote. "Students who live in residence halls on-campus are not to return to campus after spring break unless they request and receive prior authorization by contacting or 740-593-4090."
