Stay-at-home order in place

Hello, Aanii, Bonjour, 

On April 8th, 2021, the Ontario government entered a state of emergency, which includes a stay-at-home order effective at 12:01 am this morning. As a result, access to campus will be further restricted. With record numbers of cases of COVID-19, fueled by the spread of variants, this new provincial stay-at-home order is scheduled to last 28 days.  

Laurentian University’s approach to campus access and plans for gradual resumption of on-campus activities has been based on procedures developed using governmental resources and best practice information - putting the health and safety of our community members first. 

As has been practiced during phase 1 and 2 of our Return to Campus Plan, staff and faculty should work remotely as much as possible during the provincial stay-at-home order. Previously approved research activities and critical on-campus staff activities may continue, but all efforts to work remotely are encouraged.   

Due to increased health and safety considerations under the stay-at-home order, all staff, faculty and students accessing campus for the above mentioned previously approved activities must check-in upon arrival by calling security at 705-673-6562. In addition, further scrutiny will be afforded to requests for temporary access to campus and will only be approved in urgent circumstances through the regular process and submission of the online request form

Our intention is to maintain the best possible level of services and course delivery for students while ensuring the health and safety of our community. All remote and online course delivery, as well as exams, will proceed as previously planned. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

Thank you, Merci, Miigwech
