What Should I Do If I Think I Have COVID-19?
If you have symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing and have travelled outside Canada or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, stay home. You can take an online assessment which will tell you if you should be tested for COVID-19, at which point you should call Health Link at 811. If you are not seriously ill, do not go to a physician’s office such as Health Services, a health care facility or a lab without consulting with Health Link 811 first. Call 911 if you are seriously ill and need immediate medical attention and inform them that you may have COVID-19.

Mount Royal's response to the opioid crisis in Alberta

MRU Security Officers and other MRU community members are trained in the use of Naloxone in response to an opioid overdose on campus.
