SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WISH) – Another Indiana university is making changes due to the coronavirus.

The University of Notre Dame announced Wednesday that starting on March 23 all-in person classes will be suspended and will be replaced with online instruction or some other alternative form of learning options. The school said this will be the procedure until at least April 13.

Additionally, the university said there will be no classes the week of March 15 so that members of the faculty will have time to adjust to the online and alternative learning environments.

Also, Notre Dame is encouraging students to stay home and not be on campus during that period and undergraduate residence halls will only be open for students who have been approved to stay on campus. The school said that for those who must stay on campus, the school will provide essential services and remain open.

As of Wednesday, there have been 10 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Indiana. There have been no reported cases at the university.
