Masks are recommended but no longer required in most campus spaces. The exception is Health Services where visitors must continue to wear a procedure mask at all times, as per government directives.

Those who choose to wear a mask will continue to have access to free procedure masks at the entrances of most university buildings, also the location of mask recycling bins.

  • Students who need to communicate an absence should contact their professor, research lead or department administrator. They may also wish to consult information on academic accommodations, including reporting short-term absences.
