COVID-19 Update – March 23 – Message from the President, Campus Closing
by Jenni Hayman - Monday, 23 March 2020, 7:50 PM
 

The Ontario government has announced that - as of 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, March 24 – all non-essential businesses must close as part of the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Essential businesses will remain open and we will update you on that list when it becomes available.

In light of this, we have made the decision to close our campus, effective 4 p.m., Tuesday, March 24.  After that time students will not be granted access to campus. It is therefore advisable that you retrieve whatever materials you require from campus between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 24.  Please note that our residence remains open. 

Online and remote delivery of classes will continue. However, there will be no resumption of labs, and we will communicate the alternate arrangements to students. Please note, no students will be penalized academically as a result of this decision or as a result of the suspension of their placements. 

You can read the full statement from President Bill Best on myCambrian, and on our special landing page, www.cambriancollege.ca/covid, under the section “Messages From Our Leadership. Please continue to consult this webpage and myCambrian for further updates as they occur.
