Wilfrid Laurier University is taking significant steps to ensure the safety of students, staff and faculty as we work to do our part in the national and global effort to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes the disease COVID-19.
As of March 16, 2020, in-person classes are cancelled for the winter 2020 term. Most courses have moved online and all events that are not academic requirements have been cancelled. Travel to impacted areas has been restricted. Laurier’s residences remain open and campus services will continue.
Health Canada advises that the risk to Canadians varies between and within communities, but given the increasing number of cases the risk to Canadians is considered high. The university takes its guidance from public health agencies at the local, provincial and federal level. We will continue to provide updates over email, social media and on this space.
