Lock Haven University, Juniata College and the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford are all moving to online instruction due to coronavirus concerns. All three are currently in spring break and will temporarily suspend classes next week while they prepare to move classes online starting March 23. 

“We recognize that this decision raises a set of logistical, financial, and operational questions about which we will have more to say as we continue to monitor and address this matter,” Juniata College President James Troha wrote in a press release. 

At the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, classes will continue online for the rest of the spring semester. The cost of room and board will be refunded at a prorated rate. All summer study abroad trips are also canceled. 

Juniata College and Lock Haven University will hold classes online until April 3. Both plan to resume in-person classes on April 6, subject to change if conditions warrant.

Penn State announced that it is canceling in-person classes and switching to remote, online learning until at least April 3.
