COVID-19 Updates

Revised March 14, 2022

As of March 14th, the province of New Brunswick has lifted all remaining mandatory restrictions. This means residents will no longer be required to wear masks in public spaces or limit the size of gatherings. All businesses and organizations will be permitted to operate at full capacity without the requirement for physical distancing. 

Here at SSU, we now ask that everyone observe the following precautions to help keep our community safe.

  • Masks (for students, staff, faculty and guests) will be optional in Park Hall and in classrooms. Please know that your choices are supported whichever way you choose. 
  • Any student, staff or faculty with new and/or worsening Covid-19 symptoms is asked to stay home (or choose to mask/distance), and to eat separately when in the dining room. You can access a rapid test through the online portal.
  • The dining room is open for off campus students, staff and faculty. Please be sensitive to the desires of others as you choose your seating. We have a portable air filter in the dining room, which can help reduce airborne contaminants (including viruses).
  • We highly encourage anyone who hasn’t gotten their booster to register now! You can book an appointment for your booster here. If you need help doing this, or need a ride to the vaccine clinic, we are more than happy to assist you.

We look forward to seeing more of you around here soon!

If you have any questions or concerns, do reach out to Jessica Williams, the Dean of Students.

For the health and safety of everyone, please be diligent to monitor the following symptoms:

  • fever

  • new cough or a cough that is getting worse

  • sore throat

  • runny nose

  • headache

  • new-onset fatigue

  • new-onset muscle pain

  • diarrhea

  • loss of taste or smell

Should any of these symptoms occur, it is important to book a rapid test right away. You can register and book an appointment here.

We will navigate these times together.
