Cumberland College COVID-19 Update

Media Release from Mark Hoddenbagh, President, Cumberland College and Parkland College

Cumberland College is taking measures to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 on our campuses and in the community to minimize any potential impact on our students, faculty and employees. Cumberland College is following recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer of Saskatchewan and the Ministry of Advanced Education.

Our management team has been working with public health officials and our partners to monitor the situation.  Our focus is on the health and safety of our entire campus community.  

As the situation is rapidly changing, please monitor our website for the most current information.

On March 13, 2020, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, Health Minister Jim Reiter and Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab announced new measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan.

Effective Monday, March 16:

The Government of Saskatchewan also imposed new policies for its employees with regard to employee travel, self-monitoring and self-isolation procedures.

The Chief Medical Health Officer strongly recommended all employers and individuals across the province adopt these measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan, protect residents from exposure to the virus and reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the health system.

All institutions, as well as the Ministry of Advanced Education, will continue to follow the lead of the province’s emergency response officials in their response to COVID-19.  We will also continue to monitor developments at other educational institutions across the country in order to adjust our response as necessary.  The following links provides information from the larger Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions.
