UWaterloo implements mandatory masking in instructional spaces

The University of Waterloo will be requiring masking for the remainder of the semester to minimize disruptions to exams. Under the masking requirements, students and faculty will be expected to use masks while participating in indoors academic instruction including lectures, labs, tests, and exams. Students may also be asked to wear a mask in situations such as meets with a teaching assistant or instructor, but students and faculty will be able to remove masks when teaching or presenting in situations where they can maintain physical distancing. “[Recent] trends mean we need to act now to minimize disruption to the end-of-term exam season and to protect the most vulnerable people in our community,” read a UWaterloo announcement.
