Personal health measures: I’m vaccinated against COVID-19, now what?

The majority of people in Alberta and Canada have had their first shot, and are in the process of getting their second shot. With this shift and few provincial or community-level public health restrictions in place, everyone is starting to make important individual, and personal, decisions about what feels and is right for them — wear a mask? leave some room? attend a gathering? share a hug? Here is a great guide from the Public Health Agency of Canada to help you make those decisions for yourself and support the decisions of those around you.

Parking on our campuses

Employees who suspended their parking passes due to the COVID-19 pandemic can expect to receive updates from Parking Services to learn how to recall their parking spots as needed. Watch your inbox or check with Parking Services to learn more.
