Acadia masking mandate ends April 30

As of April 30, 2023, Acadia University will drop its masking mandate. The University will continue monitoring the epidemiology of COVID-19 and its variants and will take action as health and safety authorities recommend.

Acadia follows the advice of Nova Scotia’s Public Health Authority and its Occupational Health and Safety Committee. The University expects all employees, students, contractors, and visitors to campus to do the same.

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


  • Campus community members and visitors are urged to take personal precautions to keep themselves and others healthy.
  • 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. Protecting yourself and others as we continue dealing with the pandemic’s impacts is essential.
  • 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.

The COVID-19 information website will continue to be updated as needed.
