Take an active role in your safety

From frequent hand-washing to sanitizing areas in your unit, here's guidance on what you can do to protect yourself and your community.

Take part in your safety with these tips but also remember to follow what's expected of residents.

Wiping surfaces

Clean surfaces in your room

We’re disinfecting high touch points around residence, but do the same in the areas inside your residence unit.

Washing hands

Wash your hands frequently

Take at least 20 seconds to wash your hands before and after eating and avoid touching your face.


Check your health daily

Complete the AHS daily health check each morning before you leave your residence room.


Tell residence when you are ill

Report your symptoms (COVID or not) using Wellness Alert. Isolation support is available.


Play it safe

It can be hard to keep up to date when you're busy. If you're walking about and in doubt, take the cautious approach and always check to see what's expected in residence.


Work together

Policies are adjusted to align with preventative health measures directed by AHS and/or the university's Public Health Response Team.

Living with roommates?

There may be a few extra steps to navigating roommate relationships and expectations this year, but don't worry, we're here to help out.

Complete your mandatory roommate agreement

Your roommate agreement is designed to support you and your household throughout your time in residence. Have a discussion with your roommate(s) about how you will keep each other safe and healthy this year. Regularly review and update your roommate agreement as needed.
