Eastern College Beginning Phase One of Return to Campus Plan in Halifax

June 30th, 2020

As the province of Nova Scotia continues to progress through their re-opening plan, we have been actively working on our approach to re-open our Halifax campus. Similar to the province’s approach, Eastern College is developing a multi-phased Return to Campus Plan. Bearing the health and safety of our students and staff in mind, we will be taking every precaution to limit the risk and ensuring that the measures we are putting in place will be in-line with Public Health guidelines.
We are planning July 6th as the start of our Phase One return to Campus date for our Halifax campus. During this phase, in-class learning will be limited to students requiring hands-on training, with all other training remaining remote. If program deliverables can continue to be met through remote delivery, students will continue with the current remote learning environment.
Additional details of future phases will be announced as they are confirmed, however the measures in our phased approach will include:

  • Limiting the number of staff, students and clients on campus at any given time
  • Restructuring classrooms to allow for physical distancing and where the program requires staff and students to come within 2 meters/6 feet of each other
  • Providing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment
  • Requiring all staff, students and clients that come to the campus to complete active screening
