CHENEY – With the novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak growing, officials at Eastern Washington University have taken additional steps to safeguard students, faculty and staff from possible contact with the virus.
While no cases have been reported on campus, university officials announced changes last week to winter quarter final exams, asking faculty to forego in-person finals during the scheduled exam week of March 17-20 and instead hold those finals online. If online finals were not possible, faculty could hold those exams in-person March 9-13.
