COVID-19 information and updates

September 14th, 2021

In Fall 2021, Saskatchewan is welcoming post-secondary students from all over Canada and the world. Our programs and services continue with blended learning and work arrangements, where possible. We have taken stringent measures to ensure the health and safety of students and the campus community. For the most recent and accurate information on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit official provincial, federal, and international websites:


Vaccines

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.

Additional details are available in the COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Plan, and from the Government of Saskatchewan and the Government of Canada.

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 Fall 2021:

  • Masks Strongly Recommended: Parkland College strongly recommends that you wear a mask at our campuses and training locations. Masks are available if you don’t have your own.
  • 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.
