All members of the Mount Royal community contribute to the on-campus experience. It is the shared responsibility of the employer and employee to mitigate workplace hazards, which includes respiratory illnesses. Please contribute to creating a safer on-campus community by following these measures:

Stay home if symptomatic/testing positive: Stay home if you’re feeling unwell or have tested positive for COVID-19. Employees are required to complete the Employee COVID Self-Isolation Report Form. Please do so even if you are continuing to work remotely. Wellness at Work in Human Resources will contact you to discuss sick leave benefits and return to work parameters.

In the meantime, follow the Government of Alberta Isolation Requirements. Visit the HR COVID-19 FAQ and Resources page for more information, including updates to Mount Royal’s sick leave provisions for COVID-related absences.

If you have symptoms or test positive, you must isolate for at least five days from when your symptoms started or until they resolve (whichever is longer). For fully vaccinated people who have just completed the five-day isolation and no longer have symptoms, masks must be worn at all times outside of home for an additional five days. Check additional testing and isolation requirements that may apply to you:

Masks: Mount Royal strongly recommends that everyone wear a mask consistent with AHS guidelines while indoors on campus. With more transmissible variants circulating, wearing a triple-layer mask, a three-layered surgical mask or an N95 mask is an important contribution to the collective safety of the campus community.

Employees can pick up a box of rated-surgical masks at the voluntary rapid testing area in G100 (the old library on Main Street). Show your OneCard to receive a box, which should last approximately 45 working days. If supplies last, you can then pick up a new box.

Meetings: Everyone has different comfort levels. Please be respectful of others and book a meeting space larger than what is minimally required. Although wearing a mask in indoor spaces is not required, it is strongly recommended.

Rapid response: If an area of campus experiences an outbreak, the University will implement a rapid response for that area.
