Summary of COVID-19 Measures

Please note this requirement may be reinstated on short notice should public health conditions or guidance change. 


If you cannot wear mask due to a medical reason and requires an accommodation, please contact Health and Well-Being (employee) or the Tri-Campus Student Mask Accommodation Workflow Process (student). 

Individuals must continue to be masked in classrooms and indoor spaces when physical distancing of at least two (2) metres cannot be maintained until June 30, 2022. Medical-grade masks are recommended. For more information on masking and physical distancing, please refer to Ch 6 of the COVID-19 General Workplace Guideline.

 Vaccination  The University paused the requirement to be fully vaccinated on May 1, 2022 with the exception of new employees who must upload their proof of vaccination in UCheck.
Self-Screening  UCheck health self-screening is no longer required. Individuals can 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.
Capacity Limits and Physical Distancing Units have the discretion about physical distancing in their areas. Physical distancing is highly recommended in designated eating areas where masks are removed. 

These forms are no longer required; replaced by COVID-19 Safety List (optional) when planning in-person activities. You do NOT need to submit this list to EHS or for divisional review or approval – it is for your reference and support. Please contact EHS with any questions (
