COVID-19

All Updates

Following discussion with other members of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS), Acadia University announces that student-athletes and associated staff who travel with the teams will be required to be fully vaccinated in order to participate in varsity sports competitions in the upcoming academic year.

It is finally here. Acadia Rapid Testing Clinic will be opening for the first time tomorrow August 23. This clinic is available to Acadia campus members only, including faculty, staff, students, and all Sodexo and Chartwells employees. It is completely voluntary, no appointment necessary, and you will receive your results through text message, within 30 minutes.

To best protect the health and safety of our campus community, Acadia University asks that you respond to the following community-wide survey.

Dear Acadia campus community members,
Recent messages from federal and provincial public health officials have been encouraging and clear – the COVID-19 vaccine will allow us to be together safely sooner.

I am pleased to report that Acadia has recently approved a vaccination policy for students and employees. While vaccination is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended, and we are striving to reach a fully vaccinated campus community status.

This past fifteen months have been exceptional in so many ways. Many employees have been working remotely, some have worked both on and off campus as required and others have been on campus day after day throughout the pandemic. Thanks to your dedication and ingenuity, together, we provided the best possible experience for Acadia’s students in challenging conditions. My thanks go out to you for all you have done during these very difficult times.
