The University of Alberta—including Augustana—University of Calgary and University of Lethbridge will include rapid testing or vaccination, and masks as part of back-to-school plans.

17 August 2021

On August 17, 2021, the Office of the President announced new measures, including rapid testing or vaccination, and masks, as part of back-to-school plans. These protocols also apply to Augustana Campus.

On August 25, 2021, the U of A Public Health Response Team provided details on the self-declaration of vaccine status and the rapid testing program.

All Augustana students, faculty, and staff will be requested to complete their online vaccination self-declaration via email. 

Beginning September 1, all students, staff, faculty, and staff who do not disclose that they are fully vaccinated will be required to undergo weekly rapid testing before participating in on-campus activities this fall. Augustana Campus will have its own testing station. 

Please continue to check your emails and the U of A COVID-19 information page for updates.
