COVID-19 Working Safely on Campus

We all need to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on our Campus by doing the following:  

  • Follow Public Health advice about vaccinations.
  • Stay home if you are sick.  If you develop symptoms at work, contact your supervisor.
  • Wear a mask in all indoor public spaces.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands often.
  • Do not touch your face.
  • User proper sneeze and cough etiquette.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel around campus.  Socializing in person is strongly discouraged.
  • Avoid in-person meetings.  Use virtual means as much as possible.
  • Be Innovative - find safe new ways to perform work following the COVID-19 Public Health directives and StFX protocols.
  • Get Outside as much as possible.  
  • Maximize ventilation in your space.  
  • Report all Health and Safety Concerns, suggestions or observations here.
  • Follow the COVID-19 Safe Operating Procedures that apply to you.
