HAWKINS, Texas (KLTV) - Jarvis Christian College in Hawkins will be delaying students’ return to campus in 2022 due to the recent surge in cases due to the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus.

According to a press release from Jarvis Christian College, students will return to campus on Jan. 19. However, classes will start online on Jan. 10.

“Face-to-face classes will resume on Monday, Jan. 24, 2022,” the press release stated. “Jarvis faculty and staff, who would normally meet in person for the Faculty and Staff Institute on Monday, January 3, 2022, will log in virtually instead and will not return to in-office hours until normal business hours resume at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 5.”

Dr. Lester C. Newman, the president of Jarvis Christian College said the safety of their students, faculty, and staff is their priority.

“With the projections and growth of the Omicron variant, we choose to proceed with an abundance of caution,” Newman said.
