PORTLAND, Ore.-- Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced Wednesday that all higher education institutions in the state must move their curriculum online through April 28.

The executive order will also limit on-campus operations to critical functions such as dining and student housing. The governor said this is her administration's continued effort to promote social distancing in public spaces.

Oregon State University took a more drastic move by announcing all of its courses will be taught remotely for the rest of the school year. The university said all residence halls, student housing, and dining halls will remain open throughout spring. If students choose to leave the residence halls to complete spring term in their home community, cancellation fees will not be charged.
