Mohawk College in Hamilton announced Tuesday (Jan. 11) that it will continue to deliver the winter 2022 semester remotely, with few exceptions.
“The ongoing spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant has created uncertainty for Mohawk College students and staff, and for the greater community,” said Ron McKerlie, Mohawk College president. “As a result, we have decided to continue to deliver the Winter 2022 semester in the current format.”
All required in-person learning will continue but all other learning that was to be done in-person will be delivered using virtual and remote delivery for the remainder of the semester.
“There will be a few exceptions to this approach and those students will be contacted directly by their academic areas with more details,” said McKerlie. “This decision will allow students to plan ahead with certainty.”
Student Services and supports will continue to be offered remotely and in-person.
All in-person events, internal and external, had already been cancelled until the end of February.
The winter semester at Mohawk College is scheduled to finish in mid-April with summer classes beginning in May.
Hamilton reported 326 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases on Tuesday and one virus-related death, bringing the local death toll to 430.
The number of active cases in the community has risen to 9,244 and 78 active outbreaks.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
