Arizona State University is not planning to cancel classes after a student was diagnosed over the weekend with a fast-spreading and dangerous new virus.
“We have received many inquiries about university operations in light of this case. The university remains open and classes are not cancelled,” Mark Searle, ASU executive vice president and provost, said Monday in a message to the Tempe university’s community.
“We are following the health protocols prescribed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and reinforced by state and county health officials.”
In his message addressed to “ASU Students, Faculty, Staff and Families,” Searle said the school is working closely with Maricopa County and state health officials.
