COVID-19 public health measures
Updated April 2, 2022
Masks will no longer be required on UCalgary campuses, starting May 1.
Masks still required in some settings
As we have throughout this pandemic, the University of Calgary is taking a campus-wide approach to required health and safety measures. As such, there are a few specific instances where masks will still be required. They include:
- Clinical settings required to follow Alberta Health Services masking requirements.
- Transportation in university vehicles to align with City of Calgary bylaws for mask use on public transportation
Masks are still recommended
Masks are still strongly recommended for use on campus, and everyone should feel comfortable continuing to wear a mask.
While individuals are not permitted to create masking mandates, they may invite others to wear a mask when entering an enclosed research, work, study or teaching space. Continuing to respect and support people’s decision to wear a mask is strongly supported and encouraged.
The University of Calgary wholeheartedly embraces the value of vaccination in keeping you, your loved ones, and our broader community healthy. Everyone is urged to keep up with booster vaccinations as they become available, and follow recommended health guidelines. This combined with regular handwashing, physical distancing and keeping rooms well ventilated can together help limit virus transmission.
And as always, continuing to remain home when sick remains a key method to help keep the campus community safe.
We will be continuing to watch the public health situation closely and will keep you up to date on any further changes.
