Update to MRU masking rules and rapid testing

Aug. 27, 2021

As COVID-19 cases rise in Alberta and more people return to campus for the fall semester, Mount Royal will require masks be worn indoors effective Monday, Aug. 30.

Additionally, a rapid testing program will be put in place for those who are unvaccinated as early as possible in the fall semester. Details are being worked out, but students, faculty and staff will need to indicate their vaccination status. Fully vaccinated individuals will be opted out of mandatory testing while unvaccinated individuals will be required to participate in frequent rapid testing and do a daily self-check for symptoms before coming to campus.

The health and well-being of the campus community is Mount Royal’s top priority.
