Masks to be worn in common areas on campus

Release date:

Tag(s): Current Students

As of August 20, 2020, all students, employees and visitors present on our main campus, CapU Residence and kálax-ay/Sunshine Coast campus are asked to wear a non-medical mask in all indoor common areas. These areas include building entryways, atriums, hallways, stairwells, washrooms and study areas. Masks are also required in situations where risk assessments have confirmed two-metre distancing is not possible.

Confined corridors, contained washrooms and narrow staircases—along with larger spaces where people tend to gather—all create physical distancing challenges. Combined with other safety measures including frequent hand-washing and staying home when sick, non-medical masks are a protective measure in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Masks will be available for purchase on campus. Those unable to wear a mask are expected to maintain a safe distance from others.
