COVID-19 Requirements for Students for Key Activities on Campus (Winter 2022)

Note that the university has made short-term emergency modifications to the start of our winter term in response to information and guidance about the pandemic, including remote delivery of instructional activities beginning Jan. 4, with plans to resume in-person instruction Jan. 31 as public health allows. The information in the chart below will be updated to reflect public health and provincial guidelines at the beginning of winter term.

Review the COVID-19 scaling framework to determine if your activity is permitted to take place at this time before any plans are established or confirmed. The framework identifies what is permitted under each category and different levels of restrictions independently applied to the various campus activities/categories.
