COVID-19 Information

Stay up-to-date with how you can help keep our community safe.

Updated September 25, 2023

Acadia University is pleased to provide our students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to learn and work together safely.

We follow the advice of Nova Scotia’s Public Health Authority and our Occupational Health and Safety Committee. We expect all employees, students, contractors, and visitors to campus to do the same.

Acadia is advising students to use the declaration form for COVID-19 related absences.

Although masking is no longer mandated on campus, Acadia is mask-friendly and encourages mask use.


  • If experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and its variants or other seasonal illnesses, please stay at home. If unable to, please wear a mask and follow all public health directives and recommendations while moving around campus.
  • Campus community members and visitors are urged to take personal precautions to keep themselves and others healthy.
  • Please be considerate of those in our community with health conditions that place them in high-risk categories or live with individuals with high-risk health concerns.
  • Remember to respect those who choose to wear masks in public places.

This website will continue to be updated as needed.


Vaccination is your best shot

Although proof of vaccination is not required to attend campus, in keeping with Public Health guidance, you are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and its variants, including having any booster shots that you are eligible to receive in your home province or country.

Being fully vaccinated protects you from a serious illness and helps reduce the spread of the virus when your symptoms are kept to a minimum. We also encourage you to monitor your health for signs of symptoms and take appropriate precautions. Washing your hands regularly and wearing a mask in indoor public spaces are great ways to reduce your potential for catching and spreading the virus to others.
