Colleges and universities around the North Bay join California schools at various levels in closing their campuses and moving classes online, following the governor’s recommendations against meetings large and small to stop the spread of the new coronavirus.
Touro University of California, a graduate studies institution on with about 1,400
students mostly in medical fields, late Thursday afternoon announced it will move
its education to remote learning from Sunday, March 15, through April 20, and campus
events are cancelled or being moved online during that time. The campus on Vallejo’s
Mare Island doesn’t have any cases, but the institution is taking the step to limit
any possible spread of the COVID-19 virus through in-person education.
