COVID-19

What you need to know

  • Memorial suspended the requirement for masks on all campuses on June 1. Similar to other public bodies, masks will continue to be strongly recommended in buildings. Please be respectful of others’ choices. You can voluntarily choose to post this sign in your office letting co-workers, students and visitors know your willingness to wear a mask. This is an added step toward a respectful workplace.

  • Memorial's procedure for vaccine requirement suspended on June 1 at 12:01 a.m. in alignment with the suspension of the NL Public Sector Policy.

  • Don’t come to campus if you’re sick.

  • Those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should not come to campus. Doctors’ notes are not required for those who cannot attend class, exams or other evaluations due to COVID-19-related illness or symptoms. As always, students should inform their instructors promptly of absences so they can work together to ensure they can keep up with course work. Students will not be penalized if they need to stay home due to being ill with COVID-19.

  • Rapid testing is available on campus.

  • Instructors should make reasonable accommodations to support continued progress toward course completion for students who may be sick and/or have to isolate.

  • Memorial has prepared guidance for temporary work from home situations during the pandemic.

  • Check out MUNUp, an online tools and resources hub to support student success.

  • A report on Memorial's response to the pandemic can be viewed here.

Memorial continues to follow the most up-to-date advice provided by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada on COVID-19 response.
