Health measures on campus

This information is current as of April 29.

As we begin a new semester, we need your help to minimize risks related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please contribute to our shared responsibility for creating a safer on-campus community by following these measures:

 

Stay home if ill/symptomatic

One of the best ways to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home if you’re feeling unwell or symptomatic. If you do 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 five more days. Check testing and isolation requirements.

Employees must complete the self-isolation/case report form when experiencing symptoms/testing positive. Learn more.

Students must complete an Early Support Covid report when experiencing symptoms/testing positive. Learn more.

 

Wear a mask

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.

Please note, masks are still required for the following:

  • Wellness Services on campus, as their operations follow directives from Alberta Health Services (AHS).
  • Continuous masking must be followed for up to five days following mandatory isolation due to COVID infection for vaccinated individuals. For more details, visit the Province of Alberta’s isolation website.
  • In specific clinics, labs and classrooms where masks are standard personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Students completing practicums, work terms, etc. may be subject to additional requirements by their employer (e.g. AHS).

 

On-campus voluntary rapid testing

The University is providing voluntary rapid testing to support our collective efforts to create a safer environment for everyone. These tests are an additional layer of protection for our on-campus community as we face emerging variants of COVID-19. Testing for those without symptoms will be available as supplies allow. Learn more.

 

Ventilation

At Mount Royal, indoor air is filtered at the maximum highest commercial level and MERV-13 (the level recommended by health authorities). Watch this short video on how the University’s HVAC system works to keep the indoor air as clean as possible.

 

Vaccination

If you haven’t done so yet, please consider getting a booster for added protection. Those aged 12 and older can receive a third shot, while eligible groups can get a fourth dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more.

 

Hygiene

Practise proper hand hygiene and wash your hands frequently. Clean common areas and surfaces on a regular basis. Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
