A local college university says it’s closely monitoring the expansion of the coronavirus pandemic and taking a high level of caution.

Due to the recent expansion of confirmed cases in the state of Michigan, all in-person instruction and classroom settings have been suspended at Cleary University’s campus in Genoa Township. The university says it’s focused on making the transition to distance learning and the suspension is effective until April 6th. Officials say they will re-evaluate the decision on an ongoing basis and share information as it becomes available. The university is however promoting social distancing.
