MUN & CNA Impacts From COVID-19



Memorial's Emergency Operations Centre says that classes are suspended as of end-of-day Wednesday, March 18, returning remotely March 23.


Instruction is scheduled to resume remotely on Monday, March 23.


During this time, the university will remain open which means employees will report to work, research activity, work-terms and clinical placements will continue. Academic and student support units such as the Libraries will remain open.


In-person classes and in-person labs will not resume this semester following end-of-day Wednesday, March 18. Any course delivery from March 23 will occur through remote teaching. In many cases, this will mean online delivery through tools.


Residences remain open. To assist with social distancing, MUN is requesting those students who are able to move out as soon as possible do so between now and Sunday, March 22.


College of the North Atlantic (CNA) says that all programs will continue to be delivered.


Students will be advised this week whether their program will move to online delivery. The college is assessing where this can be achieved in an effort to minimize populations sizes on campus and to support social distancing;


Members of the public are asked not to visit campuses at this time and to call the campus or visit our website for information;


Employees will continue to work on campus using technology to support across campus communication and limit face-to-face and larger group meetings;


Work placements and clinical/practical will continue unless otherwise notified;


Residences will remain open, and cafeteria services will remain in place only at the campuses with residence facilities;


Daycare centres will remain open;


Computer labs and Learning Commons areas will remain open for students only; and,

Customized and Continuous Learning programs will only continue in instances that have been deemed essential to business continuity in the province, as well as workplace health and safety protocols only will continue (for questions about these courses, contact your local campus).


International travel (outbound and inbound) had been suspended until further notice. As of March 12, employees were also informed that all nonessential travel has been suspended, and only work-related travel essential for program delivery within the province would be sanctioned. If travel occurs for personal reasons, people may be asked to self-isolate for 14 days.
