KABC-TV has the details.

The school had previously planned to have in-person classes resume in August. But with coronavirus cases surging once again in California, school officials say they are seeking to keep students safe.

“Given the continuing safety restrictions and limited densities permissible on campus, our undergraduate students primarily or exclusively will be taking their courses online in the fall term, and on-campus housing and activities will be limited,” school officials wrote in a letter to students and staff.

“While not what we hoped, we are now recommending all undergraduates take their courses online, and reconsider living on or close to campus this semester.We are continuing with limited in-person, on-campus activity because we believe we can keep students, researchers, staff, and faculty safe with our low-density plan.”

The California State University and University of California systems have previously indicated almost all of their classes will be taught online this fall.
