LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The University of Nevada, Las Vegas has ordered all students to leave campus by Saturday the 21st.

It's just the latest in an increasingly long list of closures aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The university says that no one associated with the campus has tested positive for coronavirus, saying the measure being taken is a preventative one.

Students have been asked to be out by 5pm. Privately managed companies where students are housed are exempt from the order.

For students who are on spring break and can't return to campus, the school says it will handle matters on a case by case basis, including how to get student belongings packed and shipped

For students that don't have a secondary option for a place to stay, the university says,
