Manor College has moved to online classes starting on March 16 through March 27 in an attempt to slow down the spread of COVID-19 in the area.

From this Monday, students will be completing their classes using the Canvas platform. The exceptions are clinics for Dental Hygiene, EFDA, and Veterinary Technology.

Residence hall students were given until March 15 to leave their rooms and return home. While gone, their rooms will be sanitized. Additionally, all campus events are postponed awaiting further analysis of coronavirus pandemic.

Face-to-face classes are expected to resume on March 30, pending further analysis of the situation.

“We continue to monitor the developing dynamics associated with this virus and its potential impact on operations at the College,” said Marc Minnick, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Manor College. “While there have been no confirmed COVID-19 cases with a connection to Manor, we are taking the precautionary steps across campus to assist in keeping members of our Manor community healthy.”

During this period, Manor College is providing students with phone counseling through the on-campus counseling center and offering food and toiletries to those who need them through the on-campus food pantry, Bird Feed.
