Faculty and Staff,

I want to share with you that after a successful first phase of bringing back some of our community for in-person instruction, there will be more in-person courses on campus starting the week of Feb. 7. Thank you to all on-campus faculty, staff and students who followed the health protocols to ensure Phase 1 was successful.

The intent of this gradual return is to have all the courses originally scheduled for in-person instruction back on campus Feb. 28 after Reading Week. Students will receive an email early this week if there are changes to their course delivery.

If you are working on campus, please remember:

  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell.
  • If you have any core COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, you are required to isolate and complete the self-isolation report form. If you feel well enough to work during isolation and your manager has indicated your work can be completed remotely, please do so.
  • Wear a type of mask consistent with AHS guidelines. You are encouraged to use, at minimum, a triple-layer mask.
  • You are required to be fully vaccinated.
  • Voluntary rapid testing is available for those required to be on campus, as supplies allow.
  • If you are eligible, please get your booster shot as soon as you are able to do so. The City of Calgary’s vaccination van will be on campus Feb. 14, Feb. 22 and March 1 between the Riddell Library and Learning Centre and the EA building.

On behalf of the MRU leadership team, thank you for your dedication to our students and for your contributions to our community. Please continue to check your email and the MRU website for regular updates.
