All lecture-based classes at Contra Costa College have been suspended as of Monday due to concerns surrounding the the coronavirus, or COVID-19, and the college aims to begin remote instruction on Wednesday, the Contra Costa Community College District announced.
The same is true for all county colleges within the district, including Diablo Valley College and Los Medanos College.
The district is asking students to check their college email accounts and/or Canvas for instruction from their professors, and to contact their professor if they don’t hear anything.
“Lab, activity, and performance classes that require specialized spaces and equipment will meet onsite as regularly scheduled, unless your professor instructs you otherwise,” the college district said.
All colleges and centers will remain open.
As of Thursday, there have been no confirmed cases of students or employees with COVID-19 at the County colleges.
In a similar response Thursday, the West Contra Costa Unified School District decided to close all schools for three weeks starting Monday, moving to remote learning “out of an abundance of caution.”
