Welcome to our Daily Roundup, where we highlight today’s breaking news and share stories of Red River College students, instructors and staff rising to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak.

RRC restricts campus access to essential services

Red River College announced yesterday that its campuses remain closed to classes, public events and all functions that are not deemed essential services — ie. critical functions that will require some or occasional staff to be on campus during the limited access period.

TACAM lends assets and expertise to fight against COVID-19

A typical day for RRC’s Technology Access Centre for Aerospace & Manufacturing (TACAM) includes working alongside aerospace and manufacturing industry partners to address local innovation needs.

But these are not typical days. In response to the global fight against COVID-19, TACAM is using their assets and expertise to support an important partner, CancerCare Manitoba, in the production of much-needed medical equipment.


Join the #COVIDkindness Movement

A fantastic way to minimize the impact COVID-19 has on our community is to be kind to one another. That’s why we’re launching the #COVIDkindness campaign at RRC.

Here’s how it works. Over the next few weeks:

  • Pay attention to acts of kindness you witness (or perform yourself).
  • Send a description and photo (where possible) to
  • Post on your social media channels, using the hashtag #COVIDkindness and tag in RRC.

Each week, our Mental Health Coordinator, Breanna Sawatzky, will share your acts of kindness in a Wellness Blog post. All students and staff are invited to participate.

This movement is meant to foster a supportive community environment along with gratitude, both of which promote good mental health. For more information, including examples of #COVIDkindness and some talk of prizes, visit our Wellness blog.
