The health and safety of our Parkland College community is our number one priority. Our programs and services continue with blended learning and work arrangements, where possible.
Parkland College remains committed to keeping our communities healthy, safe, and informed during this time. We are taking every precaution to protect the well-being of students, faculty, staff, and partners. For the most recent and accurate information on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit official provincial, federal, and international websites:
Saskatchewan is working closely with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), which negotiates and procures vaccine directly with manufacturers on behalf of provinces and territories.
Information is publicly shared to let you know:
- When it’s your turn to be vaccinated.
- How to register for a vaccine appointment.
- The different types of immunization clinics available.
- How to find the closest clinics to you.
Protect The Parkland
Saskatchewan’s post-secondary institutions are united in doing our part to fight the spread of COVID-19 and to help keep our communities safe. Now, every one of us can do one more, simple thing: get vaccinated.
All approved COVID-19 vaccines are safe, proven, and effective ways to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
Parkland College, like other organizations, relies on a successful vaccine rollout to return to full campus activity in the fall. We are getting closer to this goal, and you can help us get there by getting fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Vaccines are not mandatory for students, staff, and others visiting our campuses. But we encourage you to do your part and help protect the Parkland.
Learning, Working & Visiting – Expectations for our Campuses
Parkland College is taking a conservative approach in its return-to-campus plan in order to best serve the college community.
Campus Expectations for July/August (or until further notice):
- Mandatory Mask Use: Masks continue to be required indoors at all campus and training locations. Summer programs and courses will trial alternatives as we gradually work toward the removal of this requirement.
- Physical Distancing: Physical distancing is no longer required, but every effort should be made to allow for comfortable spacing and the elimination of overcrowding.
- Personal Hygiene: Follow proper hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette. Hand sanitizer will remain readily available in all our facilities.
- Cleaning & Disinfecting: High traffic and commonly touched surfaces will continue to be cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals.
- Common Areas: Common lunch, study, and gathering areas will gradually re-open. Shared spaces may have limited hours to allow for adequate cleaning.
- Employee, Learner & Visitor Health: Stay home if you are ill and let your supervisor or instructor know. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and arrange for a COVID-19 test.
