Pausing Policy on Face Coverings

Hello, Aanii, Bonjour, 

June 13, 2022 will mark the beginning of the second term of the Spring Semester. As we move forward into this semester, classroom density and the on-campus population is normally quite low, with most classes including less than 20 students, allowing for a safe pause of the Policy on Face Coverings. 

Through discussions with various members of our campus community, as well as with Public Health authorities, we have determined that this pause can be implemented while maintaining the health and safety of our campus community. We continue to recommend that you wear a mask while in the presence of groups and respect the choices of those around you. Consider taking advantage of the summer weather and holding meetings outside when possible. 

As I have done in the past, I would continue to caution that this pause may be temporary, and could be reversed based on Public Health guidance.

Changes to campus policies as of June 13, 2022

We strongly recommend that all community members continue to keep up with their vaccinations (including boosters) and update their status via

  • The Health and Wellness Clinic (SSR-G19) will continue to offer doses of COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible persons
  • Rapid testing will continue to be available at the Health & Wellness Clinic 
  • The email address is monitored daily

Thank you, Miigwech, Merci,
