UCLA switches to remote learning due to threats

UCLA has reverted to remote learning after students and faculty received a threatening email and social media post from a former instructor, CBS Los Angeles reports

At about 11:57 p.m. on Monday night, the school announced that all classes would return to remote learning Tuesday "out of an abundance of caution."

UCLA had just gone back to in-person learning Monday after holding classes remotely due to the recent COVID-19 surge.

The "UCLA Police Department is aware of a concerning email and posting sent to some members of the UCLA community today

 Actively engaged with out-of-state law enforcement and federal agencies," the university said in a statement. "We will keep the community informed as we learn more."

A campus safety alert says authorities don't know whether the email sender is in California.
