COVID-19 updates

Labrador Campus of Memorial University

We are currently in Alert Level 4.

The Labrador Campus remains committed to the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students, and the people and community of Labrador. We hold an abundance of caution as a foundational principle for all our decision-making and our actions, and recognize the unique and diverse health contexts and risks that face Labrador.

As part of Memorial University, we work closely with the other Campuses throughout the province to ensure that we are both following strong public health protocols and supporting students, faculty, and staff in alignment with other campuses.

We also follow the protocols and advice outlined by Labrador-Grenfell Health, the Nunatsiavut Government, the NunatuKavut Community Council, and the Innu Nation, in ensuring all of our teaching, research, and community events in Labrador meet and exceed public health requirements, and keep people safe.
