Tonight Premier Kenney announced some upcoming changes to the COVID protocols. For the rest of the week at least, all protocols at StMU will remain as they are currently. The COVID Taskforce will be consulting with Alberta Health Services and our internal StMU community and will meet later this week to evaluate our measures moving forward.

The Alberta post-secondary institutions met with Dr. Deena Hinshaw yesterday and there was no indication that there would be a change in COVID protocols this week. We are still unsure how these will impact the university.

For the rest of the week, please continue to be prepared to show your StMU Safety App approval to the security guards and continue to wear masks in all indoor spaces and follow all of the other current protocols.

We will send an update Friday after the COVID Taskforce meets.

Thanks for your understanding as we seek more information.
