Late this evening, Alberta Advanced Education sent all post-secondary institutions an email indicating the Alberta government is now requiring post-secondary institutions to observe physical distancing until Monday, September 20, at which time the University will be included in the Restrictions Exemption Program.
This means that although we have already implemented multiple measures to keep our students, faculty and staff safe and will qualify for the exemption program which begins Monday, in-person classes are cancelled Sept 16 to 19 due to the physical distancing requirement. Online classes will continue to run.
We understand that other post-secondary institutions are taking similar actions.
Workers responsible for maintaining necessary operations of the University will be required to be on campus. Researchers can attend campus to maintain research activities but will be required to physically distance.
While the campus is closed for in-person classes, University employees who are able to work remotely are expected to do so.
I know this will be disappointing to our students, faculty and staff who have worked hard to have such a positive start to our semester.
The University will be fully open and in-person classes will resume again on Monday, September 20, 2021 as we will meet the requirements of the Restrictions Exemption Program due to the previous implementation of our vaccination and rapid testing requirements.
All those on campus are expected to physically distance.
We will provide more information tomorrow.
