In the last several days, dozens of major universities have decided to cancel in-person classes as coronavirus fears spread nationwide. The number of cases have jumped in recent days as testing is becoming available across the US.

Universities are opting to conduct classes online. Some have said that in-person classes will continue on an indefinite basis, while other universities are planning on shutting down classrooms for several weeks.
