East coast institutions moving towards in-person classes, support services

January 22, 2021
Postsecondary institutions in eastern Canada are considering the transition back to in-person services and classes. Most students are back at Holland College after PEI’s Chief Public Health Office approved the return to in-person classes. CBC reports that students are excited about their in-person classes and are finding them more productive. Memorial University has announced that most of its staff will return to campus on February 1st, a move that does not apply to students. In Quebec, “intensive” discussions between QC Premier François Legault and health specialist Dr Horacio Arruda have focused on students returning to in-person classes. While public health has not approved a return to class, Journal de Montréal reports that a decision could come after lockdown ends. CBC (PEI) | CBC (NL) | Journal de Montréal (NL | PEI | QC)
