Postsecondary institutions adapt COVID-19 safety precautions as health restrictions change

As public health authorities continue to loosen COVID-19 restrictions, postsecondary institutions across Canada are making decisions about how they will adapt their safety precautions and what precautions to keep. The University of British Columbia has dropped its weekly COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated students and will not be deregistering students based on their vaccination status. In Alberta, MacEwan University and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology have dropped mandatory masking, and MacEwan has dropped proof of vaccination requirements, noting the high rate of vaccination among its student population. As mask mandates are set to be dropped in Ontario, some institutions, such as King’s University College, have indicated that masks will be required in indoor spaces until at least the end of the term.
