Mask Requirements - University of Guelph

Based on the increasing number of cases in the province and to help curb the spread of COVID-19, the University of Guelph will keep its mask requirement in place beyond May 1. Masks will continue to be required indoors in all U of G-managed facilities until further notice. We will review our mask requirement regularly, taking into consideration changing public health trends. An update will be provided when our mask requirement changes. As we have seen with transmission peaks and valleys over the past two years, we can expect that the University's mask requirements will vary over time.

​As announced in March, U of G's COVID-19 vaccination policy and daily screening requirements will be paused as of May 1. The University may reinstate these requirements with little notice. We strongly encourage everyone to stay current with their vaccination and booster doses. This not only provides you with the best protection against serious effects of COVID-19 but also prepares you should vaccination be reinstated as a requirement for campus access, including in-person learning.
