FLA, USA — All Florida universities are being urged to move classes online due to concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19), according to the State University System of Florida.

On Wednesday, the State University System of Florida said effective immediately, all universities will make plans to transition to remote instruction as soon as possible.

The system said, "As we have continued to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 virus it has become clear that to protect the students and the residents of our state, proactive rather than reactive guidance to universities is necessary. To be clear, campuses will remain open, and operations will continue, although some adjustments may be made as determined by each university. "

Florida State University said classes will shift from in-person to online starting March 23 for at least two weeks. The university will remain open during that time. In-person classes are scheduled to resume April 6.
