Despite Rumors, NEC to go to In-Person Classes


Despite rumors, New England College still plans to go back to in-person classes starting Monday, Feb. 14, in Henniker and Manchester, N.H..

NEC started the semester with two weeks of online learning due to a large amount of COVID-19 cases in New Hampshire. The school planned for in-person classes to begin that Monday.

“As far as cases go, we are seeing a leveling off and decrease in numbers in New Hampshire and also on campus,” said Laura Anderson, medical director and nurse practitioner at NEC.

Concern of online learning being extended was brought upon students and staff from a rumored rise of cases. Anderson said she wanted to quell those rumors, but she still expects cases to come and go.

“I do anticipate some positive cases when we test the entire student body,” she said. “Our goal with testing is to get everyone back into the classrooms at NEC, and I think this will happen.”

She said the ultimate decision is not up to her, however.

NEC hosted a mass student testing today, Feb. 10, in Henniker, and they plan to hold testing tomorrow in Manchester. For more information on this testing, read along here:
