RDC closes to public access on Monday

Students asked to clean out their lockers

Red Deer College students are being asked to clean out their lockers by the end of the month, as the facility will start closing public access Monday.

Besides students who need to access their lockers, only people with specific, pre-approved appointments will be permitted onto RDC’s main campus next week and the foreseeable future — and for business purposes only, says the college.

That means students, employees, visitors or guests should not be in the facility unless they have pre-approved appointments to pick up or receive goods or services.

The measure, related to efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, will also affect the Donald School of Business in downtown Red Deer.

The school will be open until Thursday to allow faculty and staff to remove any personal items and materials they need to work from home.

“Effective Monday, April 13, RDC’s Donald School of Business will temporarily close, until further notice. No public access will be accommodated and all instructors and staff will be working from home and responding virtually to … inquiries,” states a release from the college.

The college has set April 30 as the final day for students to remove locker belongings and locks.
