Red River College is closely monitoring the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak by staying in contact with Manitoba Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada. As of March 5, the risk to Manitobans and Canadians remains low. There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Manitoba.

However, we recognize that many of you are concerned about the outbreak and its repercussions. We share your concerns and remain committed to updating you as the situation evolves.

How RRC is responding to COVID-19

Red River College is activating its Incident Management Team on Monday, March 16 to guide and coordinate the College’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. While the risk to Canada/Manitoba and Red River College continues to remain low, the College is taking this early step to ensure that we are well-prepared to support you, along with our staff and students as the world continues to respond to the outbreak.

Facilities and Campus Services is continuing to maintain all cleaning and sanitizing measures throughout our campuses, and additional products and disinfectants have been added to inventories to ensure we can maintain and expand these efforts as required. 

At this time, our activities related to COVID-19 are focused purely on prevention. We do not anticipate any disruptions to College operations. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you informed.
