While some trades training continues in machine shops with new precautions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it's definitely not business as usual for the 50-year-old college and its six campuses.

"There's still a handful of educational activities going on where it can be done in a safe manner maintaining social distancing with appropriate protective gear if necessary for activities that can't be done online".

"Our advice to students who have received an unconditional offer is always to consider whether this is the right provider and course for you, before you make any decision".

Douglas College adds that it has reached out to the student, "who says they are doing well". "There's provincial support provided by BC Campus for faculty to be better online teachers". The college's commencement planning team, in conversation with a committee of graduating seniors, will determine potential dates and forms for a different commencement event.

The student, who's enrolled in the culinary arts program at the Asbury Park school, reported that she tested positive on Friday, Brookdale President David Stout wrote in an email to the staff on Sunday.

For Wilson Community College, and for all colleges across the nation and probably the world, this means postponing classes, the semester and many events.

CNC food services were shut down Monday, on the advice of provincial health authorities. There are now around 225 students approved to remain on campus, according to Annette Diorio, Vice President for Campus Life.

These actions are essential to lower the risk of transmitting COVID-19. Residence Life staff will work directly with these students.

We are thankful for everyone's understanding and cooperation as we work through this admittedly hard time with dedication, with care for each other and with continued focus on our mutual mission - our students' education, the very important goal that we are here to accomplish.

"It's not something we've seen or experienced before". And we've been in touch with our students, faculty and staff on precautions and plans for the foreseeable future.
