Virus sends all classes online through end of semester

Effective Monday the University of La Verne will move all courses online. All residence halls and dining services will be closed. On-campus events are canceled, and university sponsored travel plans are also canceled through the end of the academic year.

All university events will be suspended, postponed or moved online following the Center for Disease Control’s recommendation of social distancing.

“Due to the rapid spread of the disease, the University of La Verne Coronavirus Monitoring Committee and university administrators have recommended that we take enhanced measures to ensure the safety of our campus communities,” University President Devorah Lieberman told the community in an email Friday.

Students living on campus have until Friday to vacate their dorms. Students who don’t have housing to return to should contact the Office of Housing and Residential Life for assistance.

As of Friday, there were no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among the University community. As of today, there are 147 confirmed cases in Los Angeles County.

For updates on this unprecedented situation, ULV community members should visit the University’s dedicated web page, laverne.edu/health/coronavirus.
