LETHBRIDGE, AB – The University of Lethbridge is continuing with online learning for a lot longer than first planned.

The local post-secondary says the decision is as a result of the exponential growth of COVID-19 cases, so another four weeks has been added meaning the first day of onsite classes is scheduled for February 28.

The Lethbridge campus and student residences will remain open and will follow all provincial health directives.

Food services, sport facilities, the gym and library will also remain open. Anyone on campus must continue to follow mandatory vaccine and masking guidelines.

The U of L believes the additional four weeks of primarily online learning will push it past what officials anticipate will be the peak of this latest COVID-19 Omicron wave.
