Amherst College issued a statement this Monday. In which the Amherst college said that all classes would be online only after spring break, which is beginning 23 March.
The college said in a message that they understood that many people would travel widely during spring break, no matter how hard they tried to discourage it. The chance of having hundreds of people return from their voyages to the campus was too high. The most suitable time to act in ways that reduce the spread of the virus was then.
The college said to Amherst students to leave campus by Monday unless they have successfully requested to remain in their on-campus residency over spring break. Those students are permitted to stay there while completing remote coursework. The campus will stay open, and all faculty and staff will be permitted to proceed with their regular work schedules.
