COVID-19 update: Planning ahead for the winter 2021 semester

As we see in the news, COVID-19 numbers continue to rise throughout the province including right here in the Durham Region. With that comes possible changes to each region’s provincial government colour-coded zoning. While our region remains in the red zone, we continue to monitor the provincial guidelines and follow public health directives.  

In anticipation of possible changes to the Durham Region’s ranking, moving us to a grey zone, Durham College is prepared to pivot once again. We are developing contingency plans for those programs and services that have in-person delivery and support. 

While we don’t know what potential limitations could look like if we move to the grey zone, we are considering various aspects of impacted programs. Rest assured, maintaining our students’ and employees’ safety while continuing to deliver a high-quality academic experience is at the forefront of our decisions. 

We will communicate via email and the COVID-19 website should there be changes to the winter semester.

Your continued patience and cooperation is appreciated as we continue to work together through these uncertain times.

We wish everyone a wonderful, healthy break.
