The University announced Tuesday it is asking students in the Notre Dame Washington Program in D.C. to return to their homes.
The decision comes after the University of California decided to close its Washington Center, where Notre Dame students live during their time in the capital.
There are 21 reported cases of the coronavirus in the D.C. region, according to The Washington Post.
So far, Notre Dame has also recalled all students from its abroad programs in Italy, China and the Jerusalem Global Gateway. Three students studying at Nanzan University in Nagoya, Japan, were also brought home.
