As the province of Ontario relaxes public health restrictions as part of the Roadmap to Reopen, and with the support of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Waterloo Region Public Health, and the Brant County Health Unit, Laurier is pausing its proof of vaccination beginning May 1. Based on a review of public health conditions, Laurier’s mandatory face-covering policy remains in effect beyond May 31 and until further notice.
Laurier continues to follow recommendations from public health, and encourages our community to stay up to date on their vaccinations should public health recommendations change.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are informed of a positive case of COVID-19, please follow the appropriate protocols:
The Student Wellness Centres are operating by appointment only.
The Pandemic Recovery Steering Group (PRSG) oversees the development of recovery plans for the university's operations – in support of the academic mission, and with the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty at the forefront.
The university’s return-to-campus planning and assessment activities are a dynamic, evolving process.
The PRSG developed a COVID-19 scaling framework to guide safety planning, decision making and priority setting in regards to campus operations and activities. The framework identifies four levels – low, moderate, high and critical – independently applied to ten campus categories.
Laurier’s Office of Research Services has developed an approval process with rigorous health and safety protocols to ensure that all faculty members who wish to undertake research activities can safely do so. Detailed information for researchers, including application forms for resuming research, can be found on the Office of Research Services page on Connect.
