Planning ramps up for return to campus in the fall of 2020
The university's phased return to campus strategy is moving forward on several fronts to support expanded operations in teaching, learning, and research for the fall of 2020. Our steering and working groups have been working hard to develop policies and protocols to ensure the safe return to campus of students, faculty and staff who need to be on campus as we ramp up operations. The university has prepared a list of minimum standards that individuals will need to follow when returning to campus:
- Anyone who feels ill, and particularly with COVID-19 type symptoms of cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat, or any of the other symptoms identified by Alberta Health Services here must not come to the campus.
- Complete the Alberta Health Services online screening survey daily.
- When on campus the following minimum standards must be observed at all times:
- Maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from other people.
- Where adhering to physical distancing measures may not be possible, a non-medical mask should be worn.
- Avoid touching your face or rubbing your eyes.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, especially before and after coming into frequent contact with high-touch point surfaces like door handles, bannisters, elevator buttons, kitchens and equipment.
- If you are unable to wash your hands, use the hand sanitizer stations that are located around campus inside main building entrances, near elevators and office spaces.
- Practice respiratory etiquette including coughing and sneezing into bent elbow and prompt disposal of tissues in the trash.
- Follow the signage and floor markings when moving around campus spaces and buildings.
- Follow all public health guidelines with respect to restrictions on gatherings, both indoors and outdoors.
