Dear members of the Laurier community,
Wilfrid Laurier University is actively planning for the fall term as we look forward to welcoming our students, faculty and staff to our campuses in the coming weeks.
The university will continue to provide masks to students, faculty and staff at no cost. Detailed information about where to pick up masks, including for instructors or event organizers picking up masks for classes and events, will be added to the COVID-19 FAQs, which will continue to be updated for the start of term.
We are reviewing opportunities to host vaccination clinics on our campuses. Details will be added to the COVID-19 FAQs once confirmed.
Please visit the COVID-19 recovery hub for more resources, FAQs, and information about our health and safety measures.
While public health signals indicate this most recent wave of the pandemic may have plateaued, we can expect to see an uptick in cases in the fall as people begin to gather indoors again.
More than two years into the pandemic, we know that measures such as masking and enhanced ventilation can reduce transmission, and that vaccination can reduce serious illness. Taking these measures will promote a safe and healthy fall term, and that we can continue to gather in-person and enjoy all aspects of our campus experience.
Thank you in advance for your care and consideration for each other’s health. We look forward to seeing everyone on our campuses in the coming weeks.
