USask faculty members call for implementation of additional COVID-19 measures

Faculty members at the University of Saskatchewan are calling for the university to implement a mandatory mask mandate and other additional measures as COVID-19 cases rise. Over 100 individuals recently signed a letter asking for masks to be made mandatory and normalized on campus and for N95 masks to be supplied on campus. “We’re all back on campus, which is wonderful, but we’re in smaller spaces and reinfection is a reality,” said USask Professor Julie Boughner. “So it’s just one other way that we can protect ourselves, protect our students, keep everyone in the game, keep everyone in the classroom.” Chair of USask’s Pandemic Response and Recovery Team Dr Darcy Marciuniuk said that students are happy with the protocols that are currently in place.
