The Northern Virginia Community College has canceled classes at its Alexandria campus after a bomb threat.
The campus was shut down at 8 a.m. this morning, and all classes were canceled by 11:30 a.m. with all campus facilities being closed.
The school advised students and locals to avoid the area.
So far, the Alexandria Police Department said the bomb threat has been unfounded, but that campus police are still working to secure the campus.
The threat came in as First Lady Jill Biden was preparing to depart for to teach a class at NOVA, but the Daily Beast reported that Biden was alerted to the threat before leaving the White House.
“The First Lady was informed about a bomb threat at Northern Virginia Community College prior to departing the White House for class this morning,” her press secretary said. “At no point was she in any danger.” https://t.co/elSmNYdD3l
