The SDML board of trustees meeting scheduled for March 24 has also been cancelled.

University College of the North (UCN) said on their website March 18 that coursework will resume March 23 using alternative delivery methods that are appropriate to their various courses’ curricula. The goal of using alternative delivery methods is to ensure that as few students as possible need to be on campus to prevent potential exposure to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. 

Students can expect different delivery methodology – perhaps all lectures will be online, course materials will be available on learning management platforms, different classroom configurations, and expectations around social distancing,” UCN said on its website. “Many of the students’ experiences will be different than those of just a week ago, with many students undertaking their coursework off-campus. Students can also expect to see is the same level of excellence and quality in the curriculum that is delivered by highly skilled and dedicated faculty members. Students should expect to receive information from their instructors concerning how classes will resume next week.”

As of March 20, the number of confirmed and presumptive positive tests for COVID-19 in Manitoba remains at 17, and no one has tested positive in Northern Manitoba, the provincial government says.
