California State University campuses will remain closed through the fall semester

The decision will affect all 23 of its universities.


California State University plans to cancel in-person classes for its fall semester and switch to online classes, according to reporting from ABC7. The decision will affect all 23 of its universities.

Timothy White, CSU chancellor, made the announcement Tuesday.

"This virtual planning approach for the next academic year is necessary because of the evolving data surrounding the progression of COVID 19," White said.

White said the rate of immunity among the public is low and a possible vaccine unlikely by the next semester.

NCAA sports will also be suspended for the fall semester.

Top disease experts have warned of a possible second wave of the virus if restrictions are relaxed to quickly or carelessly.

CSU campuses changed academic plans to virtual learning in March due to concerns of the coronavirus spread.
