Coronavirus: McGill University plans to return to in-person classes for fall semester


McGill University plans to return to in-person classes for the upcoming fall semester amid the COVID-19 health crisis.

The Montreal-based post-secondary institution confirmed the decision in a public statement issued Tuesday morning.

“While some components of courses will harness the pedagogical benefits of online teaching, students and teaching staff should plan for a return to more regular rhythms of on-campus academic activity by September,” the statement says.

The move comes as Quebec universities and CEGEPs have shifted to mostly online classes and remote learning options for nearly a year due to the pandemic. The province, which has been a hot spot for the virus, has been hard hit by the health crisis.
