Northwestern school halts in-person classes over virus
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management says it has suspended in-person classes for two weeks after four students who attended recent off-campus gatherings tested positive for COVID-19.
Kellogg’s program for full-time Master of Business Administration students, based in Evanston, will shift to remote learning Monday through Oct. 30, a school spokesman said.
Northwestern’s announcement Friday came two days after the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business announced it would go remote due to an increase in COVID-19 cases among its students. More than 100 students were told to quarantine after a large group of full-time MBA students gathered off-campus on Chicago’s North Side, many without face coverings, the school said.
