California State University won't be reopening campuses for the fall semester because of the coronavirus.

Chancellor Timothy White said Tuesday that the 23-campus system will continue to hold most instruction online, as it's done since March.

There will be some limited exceptions for courses that must be done in person, such as clinical nurse training and science lab research.

White says it wouldn't be fair to risk reopening some classrooms to students only to shut them down again if there's a second wave of COVID-19 cases, which many health officials are predicting.

Cal Poly is expected to release a video message from President Jeffrey D. Armstrong addressing the CSU's decision in the next day.
