Cal State East Bay suspends in-person classes to address coronavirus concerns

Cal State East Bay has decided to suspend all in-person classes as of March 11 in response to coronavirus concerns. According to a March 10 statement from CSUEB president, Leroy Morishita, “there are no reported cases of COVID-19 affecting any Cal State East Bay campus and the health risk to the general public remains low.”

The university is following the example of other local universities which have taken measures to limit large gatherings, including in the classroom.

CSUEB plans to move all in-person lecture, discussion and seminar courses online. In order to allow preparation for the online format, all of these courses will be canceled through Friday, March 13 and resume online Monday, March 16. Most workshop, lab and studio courses may not permit alternative modalities and will continue to meet in person.

All campus operations including the University Libraries, Housing, Dining Services, and Student Health & Counseling Services will remain open. Advising and tutoring will continue to be provided online, in-person and by phone.
