UVic board votes against senate recommendation to reinstate masks

The University of Victoria Board of Governors has voted not to accept the recommendation from its senate to introduce an indoor mask mandate. The senate voted 23-19 in favour of bringing back an on-campus mask mandate during its voting session last week. In their request, senate members wrote that “dropping the mask mandate … fundamentally alters the learning and working environment for immunocompromised students, staff, faculty, and librarians.” The university has issued a statement indicating that it “continues to strongly encourage the use of masks indoors.” Victoria News| CHEK| CTV News| UVic Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
