Return to campus

*Memorial's return to campus initiative is suspended as of Feb. 9, 2021*

Based on the information released Feb. 9 by the provincial Chief Medical Officer of Health, Memorial University is supporting the province’s circuit breaker to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the St. John’s region.

Memorial is transitioning to a fully remote teaching, learning and work environment at the St. John’s, Signal Hill and Marine Institute campuses.

This change is in effect from Feb. 10 – 23. The university will continue to monitor the situation and will communicate any changes to this plan in advance.

More information can be found here.

The return to campus information in this section remains applicable to Grenfell Campus.

The initiative to return staff to campus resumed on Feb. 1 based on public health directives and COVID alert levels.

Rather than a gradual return to campus, staff will return on a full-time basis on Feb. 1, 2021. Note. There will be exceptions to this plan based on density requirements, medical accommodations, work from home pilot programs and business continuity planning for essential functions and services. Additionally, this does not apply to staff already working from campus or those scheduled to return prior to Feb. 1.

In preparation, people are encouraged to consider related personal arrangements such as transportation, child care, etc. to support their return to the workplace. 

Our priority since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, has always been, and still is, the health and safety of the campus community.

The university continues to operate with employees working remotely and on campus – thank you for your dedication. Employees who are already working on campus may continue to do so. When on campus, employees should follow public health guidelines and posted signage including physical distancing, wearing a mask, hand washing and staying home when sick. A daily COVID-19 self-assessment check is available online and in the MUN Safe app and must be completed daily before coming to campus.
