Stay home when you're sick

If you feel unwell, don't come to campus — and seek out testing. Learn what to do if you are sick.


Get vaccinated and boosted

 Protect yourself and others by staying current with recommended shots as they are made available to you.


Wear your mask

Masks are required in classrooms this fall and are strongly recommended in crowded indoor spaces. Learn more about masks.


Practice proper hygiene

Wash your hands regularly and make use of campus hand sanitizer.  


Respect people’s space

Keep your distance when possible or requested — and stay safe by wearing your mask in gathering spaces.


Be a good neighbour

Respect our shared community, on campus and off, by following rules and recommendations.

Dal’s Facilities and Environmental Health & Safety teams have reviewed ventilation in every learning space (600+), along with research and office spaces across campus, guided by current engineering best practice as well as with COVID-19 guidance from specific ventilation and facilities groups such as ASHRAE and APPA and REHVA.
