Administrators at Duke University in Durham NC announced today that the university is suspending all on-campus classes until further notice, and that no student should return to the campus from Spring Break until further notice.
This announcement by Duke was not prompted by a confirmed case of the coronavirus ( COVID-19 ) and that the decision to suspend classes is based on an abundance of caution.
NC DHHS and the CDC have cautioned people to avoid places where large groups of people congregate to mitigate exposure.
We expect to see more NC universities and schools closing in the next few days.
