The University of Notre Dame announced Tuesday afternoon it will suspend in-person classes for nearly 12,000 students, moving undergraduate classes online for two weeks while keeping students on campus and giving the university a chance to reassess its plans and a rising coronavirus infection rate before classes resume.

"So, effective immediately, we are asking undergraduate students who planned to live in our residence halls this fall to stay home and continue their education with MSU remotely".

University president the Rev. John Jenkins said there have been 147 confirmed cases of coronavirus on campus since the start of classes for the university's approximately 12,000 students.

The positive tests came from a total of 588 tests conducted on campus from August 11-17, according to university COVID-19 data.

The university is also restricting student gatherings to 10 people or fewer and telling off-campus students not to visit campus and on-campus students not to leave campus.

Chelsea have already sealed deals for attacking duo Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech this summer, while Lampard also wants a left back and centre back.

The goal is to tame the spread of the virus so that the university can resume in-person instruction.

"Students infected at those gatherings passed it on to others, who in turn have passed the virus on to a further group, resulting in the positive cases we have seen", Jenkins said.

Michigan State is in a different situation, as it had yet to hold move-in days for undergraduates.

Notre Dame is suspending in-person classes and moving to virtual learning for undergraduate students until September 2, but the school said the decision will not affect the current status of varsity athletics, including football. Both in-person and online instruction was scheduled to begin September 2. Despite the Big Ten postponing the fall season, Michigan State will still allow its student-athletes to remain on campus.

There will be some exceptions for the colleges of Law, Human Medicine, Nursing, Osteopathic Medicine and Veterinary Medicine as well as research initiatives and all graduate programs.
