Naugatuck Valley Community College has put off the opening of its Danbury campus for two weeks because of coronavirus. Classes will be held online through September 6th. The decision was made at the recommendation of the state Department of Public Health Commissioner out of an abundance of caution, to protect the health of all students, faculty, and staff. The Waterbury campus is not impacted by the changes. Classes start tomorrow and will be held via the Blackboard platform. Naugatuck Valley officials acknowledged that delaying the on-ground learning experience is inconvenient and disappointing to students and their families, but said it had to be done in order to help prevent the spread of COVID.
