Public health guidelines related to COVID-19, especially around physical distancing, have changed every aspect of our lives, including the way we learn. In accordance with the latest recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, physical distancing rules still apply, and we are committed to following them by limiting the number of people on our campuses.
With cases currently surging in jurisdictions all around us, it’s critical that our academic delivery model is built to withstand a potential shutdown. Here in New Brunswick, we’ve recently seen how quickly yellow phase can change to orange phase, and that only reinforces how important this is.
We must continue to balance public health requirements with the experiential and applied learning opportunities our students have come to expect. The entire NBCC team continues to make learners’ education a top priority even as we each do our part to support a global effort to respond to this unprecedented situation.
