OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Creighton has decided to suspend in-person courses during the week of March 15 as part of an effort to transition those courses to an online learning format.

The step is being taken to reduce the spread of the coronavirus while ensuring academic continuity for students. There are no confirmed cases of the coronavirus at Creighton.

While the school will remain open, the school encourages students who are home for spring break, and those who have traveled to other locations, to remain or return home and not return to campus until April 13.

Those who can't make arrangements to return home will be allowed to stay in residence halls but will be expected to practice social distancing and good hand hygiene.

All public University events are canceled until Creighton resumes normal operations.

Creighton tentatively expects to resume in-person classes on April 13.
