Acadia extends restrictions date to align with Province

To the Acadia University community,

Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced recently, that current public health restrictions will remain in place across Nova Scotia until at least the second week of June.

Acadia University is therefore extending our measures until at least the second week of June to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

  • All classes and labs will remain remote delivery only until notified. The faculty will work with students to determine how they will continue their studies during this period.

  • All employees who can work from home are required to do so. No one should be on campus who is not deemed essential as on-campus support. Please contact your supervisor directly if you have questions.

  • Only research activity required to maintain health and safety and provide animal care is permitted on campus during this period. Please complete a Return to Research form and check with the deans for clarification.    

  • The Vaughan Memorial Library will continue remote service and has curbside pickup as an option.  

  • Campus facilities, including the Athletics Complex, will be closed until further notice. The Woodland Trails and Tower Community Park (including the skateboard area) remain open. Exceptions are in place for delivery services and individuals transporting students.  

Nova Scotia Public Health provides guidelines on COVID-19 symptoms and testing. The website includes exposure site notices and tips to stay healthy and prevent the spread of viruses, including handwashing and staying home when you are sick. Please refer to this information, and if you feel ill, seek help by doing a self-assessment on the 811 website.  

Nova Scotia Public Health now offers drive-through vaccination clinics in Wolfville at the Festival Theatre Remember. We are all encouraged to get tested regularly and get the vaccine when it is our turn. Recently, people 20 and older became eligible to book a vaccine, and those 12 and older have just become eligible for vaccination.

Stay home and stay well.
