Purdue University moving to online courses amid coronavirus

Coronavirus Watch

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WEHT) – Purdue University is suspending on-campus classes to try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The University sent out a letter to tell faculty and staff to move their courses online or alternative delivery before March 23. Purdue is scheduled to go on Spring Break from March 16-21.

University officials says faculty and staff should continue online coursework as long as in-person instruction seems inadvisable, which could possibly be for the rest of the semester.

Purdue’s campus will be open after Spring Break, but students must start taking their classes online by starting March 23.
