    Home / College Guide / COD going remote when classes resume at end of month because of COVID; NCC limit
     Posted on Friday, January 14 @ 00:00:05 PST

    Naperville Sun | Jan 13, 2022 at 6:24 College of DuPage will begin its spring semester Jan. 24 with almost all courses being held virtually for at least two weeks. (College of DuPage / HANDOUT) College of DuPage will begin its spring semester Jan. 24 with almost all courses being held remotely because of the upswing in COVID-19 cases and the emergence of the easily spread omicron variant. COD President Brian Caputo said it’s just another twist in the unpredictable pandemic saga, which will mark the start of its third year in March. Advertisement “(Am I) surprised? No. Frustrated or disappointed? Yes,” he said. “I certainly wish we weren’t doing this. No one wants to have this kind of disruption. But again, public health is the first consideration.” As of right now, in-person instruction at COD is set to resume Feb. 7 but that’s not set in stone, Caputo said. Advertisement Advertisement “We’re saying two weeks, but we’re not absolutely committing to it,” he said. “We certainly hope we’re beyond the surge (in late January).” only exceptions to the in-person ban will be those classes requiring lab work or hands-on vocational training. Prior to the remote learning announcement, about 75% of courses were scheduled to be a mix of in-person and remote learning.

    The rest were to be completely virtual. Current COVID-19 conditions also have Caputo and other college officials thinking ahead to things like graduation ceremonies and whether they should be held outdoors, indoors or virtually. “I’d like to bring everyone indoors but I’m not counting on it,” Caputo said. Spring semester classes at North Central College began Monday and the only big change tied to COVID are restrictions on who can attend sports events, spokeswoman Kelly Murphy said. [Most Per recommendations from state and federal agencies, the college will reduce the number of quarantine days from 10 to five for anyone with COVID-19 or COVIC symptoms, she said. With COVID case counts not yet available for students and staff during the first week of school, college officials plan to continue the protocols that were in place in December, Murphy said. Among them is the requirement that remain off-campus if they test positive or have virus symptoms until cleared to return. At indoor athletic events, only those who are pre-approved to attend will be admitted to Gregory Arena, a school announcement said. That includes student-athletes, coaches, and pep band and spirit team members, each of whom will be allowed up to four guests per event.

    The only other people allowed in will be home and visiting team members not in uniform. No spectators will be allowed at Saturday’s track and field opening meet or at the Jan. 21 Snow Day Invitational at the Al B. Carius Track, NCC has announced. North Central had planned a lineup of live events for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday but all will now be held virtually, the school has said.
