Mask requirements are extended through the Spring term.

University COVID-19 Protocols (Updated June 28, 2022)

The Saint Mary’s University campus is open, but to support the safety of our community, masking continues to be required until June 30. Details:

  • Mask requirements on the Saint Mary's campus are extended through the Spring term, up to and including June 30. This means that masks will be required to attend on-campus events. Masks are required to be worn by students at all times in common areas (hallways, lobbies, washrooms), classrooms and study spaces. Faculty are permitted to remove their masks to lecture as long as they can maintain a physical distance of 2 metres or more. Food is not permitted in classrooms; however, you can take your mask off momentarily for a sip of a beverage. Students, faculty and staff may remove masks to consume food in food service areas such as the Tim Horton’s seating area, Starbucks seating area, Dockside Dining Hall, Student Centre Food Court and other designated areas. Consumption of food and drink will continue to be allowed in the Atrium, Patrick Power Library, Arts Commons and Hari Das Commons. When you have finished eating, please put your mask back on and follow hygiene practices, including handwashing.
