Though most of MacEwan’s courses have moved online amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, some remain fully or partially on campus for practical reasons. Additionally, students may want to go to campus to visit the library or access other services (though most services are available online).
If you find yourself on campus, we want you to know that your safety is our top priority. Here are the steps we’re all taking together to keep our campus community safe.
Wear a mask
Wearing a mask helps you protect others from getting sick. At MacEwan, masks are mandatory in all public, common spaces such as hallways, atria and seating areas, and any area where social distancing is not possible. If you’re taking any in-person classes, your professor will let you know what the rules are for wearing masks within the classroom – it will vary depending on the class.
Masks are available for purchase on campus at the mstore, The Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness, the MacEwan Residence front desk and in many vending machines across campus.
Keep your distance
You already know to stay two metres away from others, and we’ve taken some steps to make that easier. You’ll find directional arrows on our floors so you know which side to walk on. When students are on campus for face-to-face classes, instructional spaces (labs and classrooms) will be set up to help students and faculty maintain proper physical distancing. Masks and/or other protective measures will be put in place in situations where physical distancing is not possible.
Wash your hands
Forgot your hand sanitizer at home? We got you covered. Bathrooms in every building are well stocked with soap, and hand sanitizer stations are located strategically around campus. Even so, consider bringing your own hand sanitizer to make sure you always have quick and easy access.
If you’re sick, report it and stay home
Familiarize yourself with COVD-19 symptoms, and screen yourself for them before coming to campus. If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, you must follow these steps:
