COVID-19 Information

The University of Regina continues to take precautions to keep our university community safe from COVID-19.

These include:

  • Hosting regular vaccination clinics and encouraging the campus community to stay up to date on vaccinations;
  • Welcoming mask use in shared spaces, and providing free masks to the campus community;
  • Encouraging self-monitoring for symptoms in order to reduce transmission – individuals who are not feeling well or who experience COVID-related symptoms should not come to campus;
  • Encouraging regular self-testing – rapid antigen test kits are available for all members of our campus community, and regular testing when we are asymptomatic is recommended to ensure the safety of ourselves as well as those around us; and,
  • Ensuring a high standard of air quality on campus by maintaining our award-winning ventilation and air-quality systems.

Thank you for your continued commitment to protecting our campus community and ensuring we all have a healthy and safe environment in which to learn, teach, and work.

Masks

Masks continue to be welcome on campus, especially in areas, like classrooms or meeting rooms, where you may be in close contact with others.

Free masks are available at the entrances of the Riddell Centre, Ad-Hum, Library, KHS, and Education buildings. Visit the Saskatchewan Health Authority website as well as Health Canada's website for more information on masking and other ways to protect yourself from COVID-19.

In Saskatchewan, the decision to keep masking voluntary was made by the Province’s Chief Medical Health Officer. The majority of universities and colleges across Canada have removed masking mandates on their campuses.

Air Quality on Campus

Early in the pandemic, the University made a number of improvements to its ventilation systems to attain a higher level of filtration and reduce the possibility of aerosol transmission.

This Fall, the U of R was recognized by the National Air Filtration Association with the Clean Air Award for five of our buildings (both Kīšik Towers, Paskwāw and Wakpá Towers, and the College Building). The award is presented for “significant improvements to the quality of indoor air by increasing the level or efficiency of the HVAC filtration system in 10 specific categories.”
