Memorial University is lifting some restrictions for the start of the spring 2022 semester across campuses but will be maintaining others while we continue to navigate the transition to pre-pandemic teaching and learning and operations across campuses.
As the province begins to loosen COVID-19 regulations, Memorial is also making changes to COVID-19 protocols. A detailed table is available outlining updates to COVID-19 guidance for the university as of Feb. 28 and March 14 respectively.
Memorial has been monitoring the academic return to campus closely. At this time, we have determined Memorial is in a position to transition remaining remote staff back to campus. All Memorial employees are expected to return to work on campus by Monday, Feb. 28 unless already a part of the work from home pilot or have an approved accommodation.
Memorial employees at all campuses who are able to work remotely are encouraged to do so prior to the holiday break.
Exams and industry training scheduled for Monday at the Marine Institute will be going ahead as scheduled.
Memorial University is monitoring the emergence of a new COVID-19 variant of concern labelled the Omicron variant and information is evolving.
Memorial’s updated Procedure for Vaccine Requirement is now posted.
To further support the campus community, the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre (SWCC) is now offering symptomatic COVID-19 testing for Memorial students, staff and faculty in the region who have completed the 811 provincial HealthLine COVID-19 assessment and have been advised to get a COVID-19 test.
