Parkland College lifts many COVID-19 restrictions, but masks remain mandatory

On Sunday, July 11, the Government of Saskatchewan lifted all COVID-19 public health restrictions across the province. However, Parkland College is taking a conservative approach in its return-to-campus plan in order to best serve the college community.

Masks must still be worn indoors at all Parkland College campus and training locations. Summer programs and courses will trial alternatives as the College gradually works toward the removal of this requirement.

Physical distancing is no longer required at the College, but efforts will be made to create comfortable spacing and avoid overcrowding.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will continue in high traffic areas, and common spaces (such as student lounges, study areas, lunch rooms, etc.) will gradually re-open.

Hand sanitizer will remain readily available at all locations. Staff and students are asked to follow proper hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette, and to stay home if they are not feeling well.

And the College encourages all students, staff, and visitors to get the COVID-19 vaccine. 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.

As the summer progresses, Parkland College’s Safety Department will monitor campuses, collaborate with partner institutions, and follow case numbers in our region. The College will announce further changes and updates, if required, before the start of the 2021-22 academic year.
