Cambridge Regional College to close until after Easter break over coronavirus outbreak
Cambridge Regional College will close today (Wednesday, March 18) to students, visitors and most staff over the coronavirus outbreak.
A statement released by CRC said that both its campuses in Cambridge and Huntingdon will close from 4.30pm until after the Easter break.
The college has also cancelled all restaurant bookings, beauty salon appointments and its sport centre and gym.
Students will be supported with their studies at home.
The statement said: “All students in supported learning will be supported with their studies at home from Wednesday 18 March and should not attend college. We hope, at this stage, to return to business as usual on Monday 20th April. Please note that most staff and students are working online from home and our business is running as normal, albeit not from college premises.
“As of 17 March, all restaurant bookings, all external room bookings and our beauty salon appointments have been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back soon. In order to comply with social distancing, and to support in the ‘delay’ phase, we have also made the difficult decision to close our sports centre and gym to members.
“Our website will be updated regularly to keep you informed. Please also follow our social media channels for any updates.
“This closure comes as the country moves to a more stringent delay phase and social distancing rules. There are no confirmed cases at CRC.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you all stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you all again in a few weeks.”
