Cadets at the Royal Military College (RMC) of Canada are being asked to leave campus immediately, due to concerns over the spread of the novel coronavirus.
A Facebook post from the college said the chief of the defence staff, Gen. Jonathan Vance, “has directed RMC to immediately reduce the student population on campus as much as possible.”
“Once the officer cadets leave the campus in the coming days, they will not be permitted to return for any reason,” RMC said.
According to RMC, all officer cadets who can leave and move into another residence are being told to do so. Those who cannot will remain on RMC grounds in barracks.
“For those remaining on campus, critical services will be maintained and you will be supported. Departures will begin as early as possible, under the authority of the Training Wing.”
All students, whether at home or in the barracks, will be completing their studies online until further notice.
