Duke Cancels Classes, Extends Spring Break Due to Coronavirus

DURHAM, N.C. — Duke University has extended Spring Break and temporarily canceled all face-to-face classes in midst of the coronavirus.

“In the past few days, it has become clear that the spread of the virus continues across the country,” the university said in a statement from their website.

The university says all on-campus classes will be suspended until further notice and they will transition to ‘remote instruction’ for all undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools.

Duke says in order to provide students and faculty time to make the transition easier the undergraduate spring break will be extended to Sunday, March 22 and classes will resume on Monday, March 23.

The university says all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students who are currently out of town for spring break should not return to campus, if possible.
