FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Manchester University says it will continue to hold classes while it monitors the threat of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
On its website, the university says it will not close until there's a significant change in the epidemic, Northeast Indiana and local communities.
It's also not going to virtual learning, which some schools, including Purdue, are choosing to do.
"The purpose of using online teaching is to reduce large gatherings," the university says on its site. "Our class sizes do not warrant the use of online-only course delivery as an effective means of reducing content. We have contacted health officials and have not been advised to change our normal operations."
The school says it will pay more attention to cleaning high-touch surfaces on both of its campuses.
Earlier this week the university announced it was doing a deep cleaning after one of its students was concerned they had contact with a patient who contracted the virus. Today the university says that student did not have contact with that patient.
The university asks that any students or staff who are concerned they've been exposed contact the university before returning to campus.
