The University of Windsor says while they continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus situation, there are no immediate plans to stop classes on campus.

“We are actively planning for the remainder of the academic semester including classes and examinations as well as on-campus events,” said University of Windsor President Robert Gordon. “Presently, we are working to find ways to support a range of delivery methods as alternatives to face-to-face classes that professors and instructors can adopt.”

“More information about potentially moving to online courses and alternative delivery methods will be available soon to support faculty and instructors, should this become necessary.”

University officials say the final exam period will remain as scheduled.

The University has also established a Pandemic Planning Committee and is co-ordinating efforts through ongoing co-operation with other post-secondary institutions, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, and both the provincial and federal governments through the Council of Ontario Universities and Universities Canada.
