In a tweet posted Saturday night, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's President Jeffrey Armstrong announced the school is mandating no in-person finals in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

President Armstrong says while there are no known cases of COVID-19 in the campus community, the administration is making the decision out of "an abundance of caution."

Earlier this week, Cal Poly sent out an email strongly urging students, faculty and staff to not travel for personal reasons, such as Spring Break, and instead stay on campus.

It's unclear at this time if Cal Poly will follow in the steps of UC Santa Barbara and cancel in-person classes for the rest of the school year.
