Public Health Agency of Canada COVID-19 Guidelines

Please take a moment to review the below Public Health Agency of Canada COVID-19 guidelines. Take care of yourself and each other by practising social distancing, washing your hands, and staying home. Together, we can flatten the curve.

1. Are you or your friends and family returning to Canada from vacation or other travels?

Welcome home!  And please stay home.  Avoid contact with others for 14 days. This important preventive action protects your loved ones and your community, because you may have come into contact with the COVID-19 virus while travelling.

Download package 1 – Welcome home. Stay home.

2. Build community immunity with social distancing.

The COVID-19 virus can only spread through direct touch or through infected droplets from coughing or sneezing. This means we can build community immunity with social distancing and personal prevention.

Staying Connected

We understand that the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak can exacerbate stress and feelings of loneliness. It’s important to our health, well-being and stress levels that we don’t confuse the necessary physical distancing with social isolation. Thanks to technology, there are many ways that the campus community can stay connected and support one another during social isolation. On this page, you will find unique and innovative suggestions on how to stay busy and healthy while doing your part to help contain the virus.
