Dear students, faculty and staff,
The province is implementing a proof of vaccination policy effective today, October 4. The provincewide proof of vaccination policy does not apply to post-secondary institutions unless we are hosting an event or activity that will include the participation of the general public. In all other circumstances we continue to be governed by King’s central safety plan [PDF].
Elements within our community that invite the public will be taking the following measures:
The Library, Wardroom and the public functions within Athletics will each begin requesting proof of vaccination and ID to the best of their ability – beginning on Monday. The Registrar’s Office will do the same for its campus tours.
The Chapel’s services are not affected, however, for weddings and funerals attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination. The Galley will remain open for public take-out.
Audiences for public theatrical and choral performances will also be required to show proof of vaccination.
The province provides helpful information about their new protocols.
Our Occupational Health and Safety Committee is still considering the details of how this new provincial requirement will apply to King’s and our campus events and activities. Further information will be shared as it becomes available.
Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to adapt to the changing environment and the province’s new vaccine policy.
President and Vice-Chancellor
