Continuation of mask requirement until at least June 30, 2022:

  • Masks will continue to be required in indoor spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Masks are not required while participating in athletic or fitness activities.
  • The University continues to recommend the use of medical-grade masks where possible. 
  • Even in settings where masks may not be required because physical distancing can be maintained, we ask everyone to always respect the decisions of others, their comfort levels, and health needs.

Updates to screening:
Effective May 1, 2022, screening will become unavailable in UCheck. 

  • While health screening through UCheck is unavailable, individuals can choose to monitor their health using the Provincial health screening tool. 
  • Completing a health screening before coming to campus is highly recommended, and we continue to ask members of our community to remain at home if they are ill. 

We ask everyone to respect the decisions of others regarding these measures, according to their comfort levels and health needs. It is vitally important that, even with the easing of provincial measures, we remain vigilant, conscientious, and respectful of one another.
