KENT, Ohio — Kent State University announced the cancellation of all on-campus activities, events, summer camps and conferences sponsored by the university through July 4.

The cancellation of all events on campus comes after Kent State canceled the 2020 Porthouse Theatre season, the Kent Blossom Musical Festival season and the May 4 50th Commemoration Weekend events.

The cancellation also includes any events sponsored by organizations that use the campus.

For events after July 4, the university will monitor the development of COVID-19.

"We will continue to monitor the development of COVID-19 and will make a decision by late May regarding Summer III (July 9-Aug. 12) and other courses that begin on or after July 9. By late May, we will also make a decision regarding whether on-campus events and activities scheduled for after July 4 will be allowed to continue," the university said in a statement.
