Salisbury University is among several Maryland state schools choosing to hold classes online as a means to help prevent the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the eastern shore. According to 47ABC, classes will be taught online from March 23rd through April 3rd following the student's spring break. While the campus is not expected to be closed during this time, officials are encouraging students not to return to campus. All classes will be canceled this Thursday and Friday, March 12th and 13th, in order to give faculty time to prepare for the transition.
Several other colleges and universities in the state have made similar decisions to extend the spring break period and transition to online instruction include American University and Towson University.
