Brock University asks students to avoid leaving Niagara for Thanksgiving and fall break

CKTB - NEWS - Brock University

Brock University is asking students living on or near campus to avoid leaving Niagara for Thanksgiving and the fall break, if possible.

If students are leaving the region, they are being reminded to limit travel and contact with others when they return.

Residence will remain open for those students who decide to stay for the fall break.

Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President of Students Anna Lathrop says, "It is imperative that all of us follow public health guidelines and work collectively to ensure the safety of our family, friends and members of our Brock community. The responsibility rests with each of us to ensure our Thanksgiving is a safe one."

Ontario government officials are recommending residents limit Thanksgiving celebrations to only their immediate household, though officials did suggest people living alone may join another household for the occasion.
