MSVU COVID-19 protocols


As COVID-19 cases continue to increase in our communities and due to the flu and respiratory viruses season, the Mount Health Office is making some important changes of which you should be aware.

Beginning October 31, 2023, medical masks will be required in the Mount Health Office in clinical care areas where patients, students, family members, and other care providers are present.

Masks will be available at the entrance to the Mount Health Office. Reducing the risk for transmission of all respiratory viruses is our shared responsibility. We thank you for your cooperation in helping us protect our patients, students, staff, and communities.

Mask are encouraged in crowded indoor public spaces or should you have cold symptoms (like a cough or runny nose). For those in need of a mask, they will continue to be available for pick-up at the Assisi Security Desk (Assisi Hall main entrance), Library Circulation Desk (Main floor, EMF), Registrar’s Office (Room 207, Evaristus Hall), and Athletics & Recreation main desk (2nd floor, Rosaria Student Centre). Free COVID-19 rapid test kits are also available at these locations.

Stay home if you’re sick

Another important means of protecting our community is to stay home if you are sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should not come to campus, even if you have tested negative on a rapid test (you may not get a positive rapid test result until a few days after the onset of symptoms). If you do test positive for COVID-19, you should complete the Nova Scotia COVID-19 Report and Support Screening form. Please also contact your instructor or supervisor to make arrangements for your absence.

Should changes to modes of delivery for any of your courses result in an on-campus class next to an online class in your schedule, you don’t have to rush home in between. There’s a list of quiet locations on campus where you take online courses.
