THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) — Thomas University has announced that spring break will be extended and classes will be transitioned to an online format.

TU's spring break, which was originally scheduled for March 9-13, will be extended by one week. Classes will resume on Monday, March 23, and all in-person classes will be transitioned to an online format.

While no cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Thomas University or in the city of Thomasville, we feel it is necessary to protect our students and employees from the threat of this corona virus,” said Dr. Andy Sheppard, TU President. “The safety of our university family is of the utmost importance.”

Residence halls, dining facilities and other campus services will remain open. However, students are encouraged to move home or live off campus if they are able to do so.

Students who traveled overseas during spring break are required to notify the Office of Student Life about their travel.

Administrative offices will be open, but employees will be working remotely and can be reached by email.

Athletic competitions will continue. These games will also be video streamed. Links for the streaming are available on the TU Athletics website,
