As our community continues to take precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are also working hard to preserve the academic semester and to continue to deliver a quality education to our students.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update accordingly.
Physical distancing means reducing close contact with others in the community. Please remember to practice physical distancing whenever outside your home by keeping two meters (six feet) away from one another at all times to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Also, the most important thing you can do to prevent infection and protect yourself from COVID-19 is to wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds and avoid touching your face.
ਇਕੱਠੇ ਮਿਲ ਕੇ, ਅਸੀਂ ਇਕ ਦੂਜੇ ਦੇ ਵਿਚਕਾਰ ਸਰੀਰਕ ਦੂਰੀ ਬਣਾਈ ਰੱਖਣ ਲਈ ਸੁਚੇਤ ਕੋਸ਼ਿਸ਼ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਕੋਵੀਡ -19 ਦੇ ਫੈਲਣ ਨੂੰ ਹੌਲੀ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੇ ਹਾਂ. ਸਮਾਜਿਕ ਦੂਰੀਆਂ ਫੈਲਣ ਸਮੇਂ ਬਿਮਾਰੀ ਦੇ ਫੈਲਣ ਨੂੰ ਘਟਾਉਣ ਦੇ ਸਭ ਤੋਂ ਪ੍ਰਭਾਵਸ਼ਾਲੀ ਤਰੀਕਿਆਂ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਇਕ ਸਾਬਤ ਹੋਈਆਂ ਹਨ.
ਇਸਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਦੂਜਿਆਂ ਨਾਲ ਨੇੜਲੇ ਸੰਪਰਕ ਨੂੰ ਘੱਟ ਤੋਂ ਘੱਟ ਕਰਨ ਲਈ ਤੁਹਾਡੇ ਰੋਜ਼ਾਨਾ ਕੰਮਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਤਬਦੀਲੀਆਂ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ:
CNC has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work and learning environment. During this global pandemic, we must all do our part. CNC security and staff will speak to anyone not practicing physical distancing on campus. If a person refuses to comply to physical distancing guidelines, they will be requested to leave campus. If there are any concerning behaviours with the request to leave campus, further consequences may occur including possible student suspension or student expulsion.
ਸੀ.ਐੱਨ.ਸੀ. ਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੰਮੇਵਾਰੀ ਬਣਦੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਇੱਕ ਸੁਰੱਖਿਅਤ ਅਤੇ ਸਿਹਤਮੰਦ ਸਿਖਲਾਈ ਦਾ ਵਾਤਾਵਰਣ ਪ੍ਰਦਾਨ ਕਰੇ। ਇਸ ਵਿਸ਼ਵਵਿਆਪੀ ਮਹਾਂਮਾਰੀ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਸਾਨੂੰ ਸਾਰਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣਾ ਹਿੱਸਾ ਲੈਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਹੈ. ਸੁਰੱਖਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਕਾਲਜ ਸਟਾਫ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਕਿਸੇ ਨਾਲ ਵੀ ਗੱਲ ਕਰੇ ਜੋ ਸਮਾਜਿਕ ਦੂਰੀਆਂ ਦਾ ਅਭਿਆਸ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਰਿਹਾ ਹੈ, ਜੇ ਕੋਈ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਪਾਲਣਾ ਕਰਨ ਤੋਂ ਇਨਕਾਰ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ ਤਾਂ ਉਸ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਨੂੰ ਕੈਂਪਸ ਛੱਡਣ ਦੀ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਕੀਤੀ ਜਾਵੇਗੀ. ਜੇ ਕੈਂਪਸ ਛੱਡਣ ਦੀ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਨਾਲ ਕੋਈ ਵਿਵਹਾਰ ਹੋਣ ਤਾਂ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਤੀਜੇ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੇ ਹਨ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਵਿਦਿਆਰਥੀ ਦੀ ਮੁਅੱਤਲੀ ਅਤੇ ਜਾਂ ਵਿਦਿਆਰਥੀ ਦੀ ਬਰਖਾਸਤਗੀ ਸ਼ਾਮਲ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੀ ਹੈ.
