MILWAUKEE (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has suspended in-person undergraduate instruction for two weeks, citing an increase of COVID-19 cases.

The school said in a release it is requiring face coverings on all campus property, whether indoor or outdoor and is expanding a previous edict for shelter in place that was limited to one residence hall.

The Journal Sentinel reports that classes are now scheduled to resume in-person instruction on Sept. 28.

Graduate courses will continue in their current pre-established mode.

State health officials on Sunday confirmed 1,582 new cases of the coronavirus, for a total of 89,185 positive tests. One new death was reported, increasing the number of fatalities from the disease to 1,210.
