The cancellations apply to all UNT at Frisco satellite campuses, including Hall Park, Inspire Park and the Collin Higher Education Center in McKinney.
The university will use this time to transition to online or alternative instructional delivery. By March 19, students will receive details about their classes via their UNT email.
There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus at UNT, Smatresk said in the notice; however, he said, cancellations are being made an effort to protect UNT’s community as cases of the illness arise in Collin, Dallas and Tarrant counties.
Online classes and field experiences will continue March 16-22, Smatresk said in the statement. All instruction will resume Monday, March 23.
Additionally, all university-sponsored international travel will be suspended until further notice, Smatresk said. Only domestic travel necessary for “essential business continuity” will be allowed, per the notice.
Faculty, staff or students returning from countries with travel restrictions will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, per the notice.
