List: Northeast Ohio institutions, locations, & events that have been closed or restricted due to coronavirus threat

Kent State and Case Western are among the local colleges moving most or all classes online.

CLEVELAND — Ohio. Gov. Mike DeWine has recommended all colleges and universities in the state go to remote online classes until the spread of the coronavirus can be contained.

DeWine also said these schools should intensely screen their students and ban all sponsored international travel. K-12 schools are still in session through the end of the week, but will be given a three-week spring break starting Monday.
