REDDING, Calif. - Redding's Simpson University will soon transition to only online classes for the rest of the semester due to the coronavirus.

The University says they want to make sure people know there are no known cases of the virus on campus but the leadership said they have determined it is necessary to take those additional steps to ensure the health and safety of the Simpson community.

In a break-down, the school said March 16 will mark the start of the transition from in-person classes to online only.

"It is expected that [students] will check [their] email, Moodle, and any other online systems utilized by [their] professors
during the hours when classes would usually meet [with the exception of Spring Break on March 23 to 27]," said university president Norman D. Hall.

Beginning March 30, there will be no in-person classes on campus, continuing on through the end of finals week.

As for housing, the president says students are "encouraged to move out of university housing" but housing will remain open and community check-ins will also take place.

All sports practices and games have also been suspended and all events, including chapel, hosted on the campus have been postponed.

Graduation and any related activities are still scheduled and remain under review.
