Fall 2021 COVID Updates

Send me Info

While the college strongly recommends getting vaccinated, we are not currently planning
to implement a Restrictions Exemption Program that would require proof of vaccination
for staff or students. Instead, we have re-instituted physical distancing into all our
campus spaces to enable on-campus classes to resume as of Wednesday, September
22, 2021. We are working closely with Advanced Education and other key constituents
to assess our ongoing response to COVID-19.

September 16 Update

As you are aware, yesterday evening the province of Alberta declared a public state of emergency and instituted a range of new measures to help combat the spread of Covid-19 in the province. We continue to review these new measures carefully, but please note the following immediate changes to how we operate:

  • There will be no classes on campus on Friday, Monday or Tuesday. 
  • Classes scheduled for Friday, Monday or Tuesday will be offered via alternate delivery methods.
  • The facility will be closed to students and guests from Friday September 17th until Tuesday September 21st. The facility will be open for staff and faculty.
  • Over the next few days, distancing will be re-instituted into all our spaces. The chapel and West Wing 226 will be used as classrooms. The gym may also be used.
  • We are planning to re-commence on campus, physically distanced classes on Wednesday September 22nd. 
  • We are hopeful most classes will remain in the same time block, but some classroom locations may change.
  • In person chapels will be cancelled at this time. In person Chapel Life Groups plan to commence the week of September 27th.
  • All co-curricular activities and events, extra-curricular trips or socials are cancelled until further notice.

We are in communication with Alberta Advanced Education and continue to monitor developments. Further details will be provided in due time.
