Three more CSU campuses switch to remote learning amid Covid surge

California State University, Los Angeles; Sacramento State and CSU Channel Islands will begin instruction in 2022 with distance learning due to the surge in Covid cases, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

Cal State LA will be closed for in-person instruction for three weeks, from Jan. 24, when the spring semester begins, until at least Feb. 11. Cal State Channel Islands and Sacramento State will be remote for at least two weeks, until Feb. 6.

“By allowing the peak of the surge to pass before beginning in-person instruction, we hope to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our university community and the other hardships it causes,” Cal State LA President William Covino wrote to the campus community. “We look forward to returning to in-person instruction and activities. We will keep you informed and provide you with updates in the days and weeks ahead.”
