Current Status — UPDATED February 11, 2021

One-time and occasional visits to campus can be permitted by supervisors and managers according to the above criteria. See the Approval Processes for Returning to Campus section of the Safety Measures General Directives for more information.

What to do if an employee feels ill

If one of your staff, students or participants have informed you that they have tested positive for COVID-19 or are legally required to isolate AND have been on campus in the last 14 days, contact the U of A Triage Team as soon as possible. Email your name and the number where you can be reached to Bookmark for this and other rapid response protocols during the pandemic.

If an employee experiences COVID-19 symptoms, advise them to complete the COVID-19 self-assessment provided by Alberta Health Services (AHS). If testing confirms a COVID-19 diagnosis, they should follow AHS’ instructions. A doctor’s note is not required.
