Princeton Is Following the Harvard Rather Than the Berkeley Virus Policy

Princeton University is following the Harvard model of continuing existing course delivery, in contrast to Berkeley's abrupt shift, and then transitioning to online instruction on March 23. From the Princeton website:

To facilitate social distancing, all lectures, seminars, and precepts will move to virtual instruction beginning Monday, March 23. Academic classes and mid-term exams will continue the week of March 9 as planned, following social distancing protocols.
Faculty have received guidance and recommendations on on-line delivery methods for their courses. The McGraw Center will provide support to faculty, as detailed on its website, including instructional strategies, available tools, and recommended best practices.
Given the likelihood of significant disruptions to life on campus students are strongly encouraged to stay home after Spring Break and meet academic requirements remotely until at least April 5. Students who remain on campus should also expect to receive instruction remotely and be prepared for the fact that on-campus social activities and interactions will be severely limited.
