CALIFORNIA, Pa. — California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U) will not open it's campus to students this fall but instead operate remotely because of concerns about the state's recent rise in coronavirus infections.
Cal U officials announced on Friday and it reverses the planning that was underway for in-person learning.
"It has become apparent that even the best on-campus experience presents too great a risk to our Cal U family," said university President Geraldine Jones. "Like many of you, I am eager to return to the Cal U we all know and love. But right now, the risks are simply unacceptable."
Classes will begin Aug. 24. Most faculty and other employees will work remotely and student activities being held virtually.
