California Baptist University update on coronavirus developments

March 12, 2020 - Riverside

Coronavirus update: 3/12/2020:

After careful consideration of the events concerning the coronavirus, especially in the past 24 hours, and out of an abundance of caution, California Baptist University leadership has announced they are extending spring break starting tomorrow March 13 through March 27. This affects traditional in-person undergraduate and graduate students. The Division of Online and Professional Studies will continue to operate under its normal schedule.

There are still no cases of COVID-19 on campus or directly impacting anyone associated with the university at this time. The extended spring break will allow university leadership to plan out an effective path for the remainder of the semester taking into account the rapid spread and unpredictability of COVID-19.

Furthermore, all outside group meetings, conferences and events are canceled through the end of the month. This includes the men’s basketball game on March 17.
Students are strongly encouraged to return home for spring break. There is also a recommendation to bring your textbooks and study materials in the event you are requested to study through an alternative method.

CBU’s business operations will remain open during normal business hours.
Students are asked to frequently check their campus email and for the latest campus updates and information regarding CBU’s plan moving forward.
