Safety Measures General Directives

The Safety Measures General Directives (SMGD) provides guidance on expectations for faculty, staff, students, contractors and visitors in preparing their plans to ensure a continued safe return to our campuses. The SMGD reflects the current health measures for the balance of the Winter Term. It may also be amended in response to emerging public health information. It is predicated on promoting vaccination as an important measure as well as other measures as follows:

  • Daily personal health checks
  • Effective ventilation
  • Strong recommendations for wearing masks indoors in high-traffic or high-capacity spaces
  • Staying home when sick
  • Activating the Rapid Response Plan on a positive test or if symptomatic
  • Good hand hygiene and cough/sneeze etiquette
  • Prudent personal risk assessment

In order to create and maintain a safe learning and working environment, the university may have additional safety measures for higher risk activities and will monitor community infection rates and public health restrictions.

Anyone impacted by  COVID-19  on the basis of a protected ground, recognized under the Alberta Human Rights Act, may apply for accommodations in accordance with the university's Duty to Accommodate Procedure (UAPPOL).
