COVID-19 information and updates

June 18th, 2021

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:


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

Masks are mandatory in all Parkland College shared spaces. While on campus, please use provided hand sanitizer, follow directional signage, and ensure that you maintain a minimum of two metres (about 6.5 feet) of physical distancing at all times. Please stay home if you are sick.

All residents of Saskatchewan are urged to adhere to best personal protective measures:

  • Wear your mask in all public places, including all workplaces.
  • Maintain 2-metre physical distancing.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Reduce activities outside of your home. Order take-out or curbside pick-up. If you are able to work from home, work from home at this time.
  • Avoid all unnecessary travel throughout the province at this time.
  • If you have any symptoms, stay home and arrange for a COVID-19 test.
