Northwestern school halts in-person classes over virus – About Your Online Magazine


EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) – Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management says it suspended face-to-face classes for two weeks after four students who attended recent off-campus meetings tested positive for COVID-19.

Kellogg’s program for full-time masters in business administration, based in Evanston, will switch to remote learning from Monday to October 30, a school spokesman said.

Northwestern’s announcement on Friday came two days after the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business announced it would become remote due to an increase in COVID-19 cases among its students. More than 100 students were quarantined after a large group of full-time MBA students met off-campus on Chicago’s North Side, many without facial coverage, the school said.
