Closed campuses, online classes. Struggling colleges will receive $14 billion in coronavirus relief but say it’s not enough.

Harvard, whose president, Lawrence Bacow, tested positive for the coronavirus, is under pressure to continue paying employees, although many of their facilities, such as dining halls, will be closed through the end of the semester.

In a statement to The Harvard Crimson newspaper, it said “the economic impact of this rapidly evolving public health crisis is one that is hitting employers of all sizes, not just higher education institutions.”
