Due to the situation with the Omicron variant of COVID-19, Cambrian College has announced it will not be transitioning its theory courses back to in-person delivery on Jan. 31, as was previously planned.

“Instead, for the full winter 2022 term, all theory courses will be delivered virtually, with only necessary hands-on labs being delivered in person and on campus,” said the college’s president, Bill Best, in a statement published to Cambrian’s website.

“There will be a few exceptions to this approach, and those students will have already been contacted directly by their academic areas. This decision will allow students and faculty to plan ahead with certainty.”

Best said the college will continue to monitor the situation in order to determine when and how we may begin to transition back to a more in-person campus experience in all of its programs and service areas.

“However, we wanted to ensure that we provide you with a clear understanding of academic delivery for the term,” said the statement.

“Student services and supports will continue to be offered remotely. Staff who are required to facilitate the delivery of academic programming or to ensure the day-to-day operation of the college will continue to attend campus.”

Best also said college staff who are working from home will continue to do so until further notice.
