The closure remains in place to protect the health and safety of our students and staff. Continuing to follow the social distancing and other health directives of the federal and provincial health authorities remains mandatory.
The university is not planning large-scale reopening of its operations within the next several weeks. Only staff who are deemed essential to the core operations of campus are allowed on campus. Everyone else who is able to work remotely is expected to continue to do so and remain off campus.
While a large-scale reopening is not being planned, consideration is currently underway for reopening limited operations, including some research activities. There will be a central approval process in place to ensure any operations or activities that reopen are done so in a safe, systematic and orderly way. Details about the approval process will be announced next week.
As a community it is critical that we support each other and remain respectful during what is a difficult time for all of us. Please follow all guidelines and take all precautions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 in our community.
