COLORADO SPRINGS — Due to confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state, Colorado College is extending its Springs Break by a week, through Sunday, March 29.

On Monday, March 30, CC will being Block 7 with distance-learning classes only. In a press release, CC said because the Block Plan allows more flexibility, they will monitor the situation and determine mid-Block 7 if they can resume in-person classes for Block 8.

Extending Spring Break will give them more time to monitor and assess the ramifications of the virus's reach and will allow faculty more time to modify their Block 7 classes to be delivered via distance learning.

The college also said they are canceling most, if not all, large campus events that are scheduled between now and the end of Block 7, including admission open houses.
