Saskatchewan Polytechnic will temporarily suspend in-person learning at Moose Jaw Campus from Monday, March 29 through Monday, April 5, 2021.
This decision is in response to the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Regina, including variants of concern (VOC). As part of the Government of Saskatchewan's amendments to the public health order, travel is not recommended in or out of the Regina area unless absolutely necessary. Sask Polytech realizes that employees and students commute from Regina and area to Moose Jaw Campus for work and learning.
On Wednesday, March 31 Sask Polytech will provide an update on when limited in-person learning on Moose Jaw Campus will resume.
Sask Polytech continues to follow strict COVID-19 protocols as the health, safety and security of our students and employees continues to be of the utmost importance. Students should monitor messages from their instructors for alternative plans for time scheduled to be on campus.
Sask Polytech has taken a number of precautions to support student and employee safety while on campus or in clinical to complete limited in-person training, including following the advice of the Chief Medical Health Officer of Saskatchewan, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Advanced Education.
Our Sask Polytech community has the ability to slow the spread of COVID-19 dramatically by following a few simple rules. Please remember to:
- Stay at home and away from others if you feel ill.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer containing at least 60 per cent alcohol.
- Keep a 2m physical distance from others outside your immediate household.
- Wear a non-medical mask as appropriate, and when physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Masks are mandatory on campus.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects often.
It takes a community to keep everyone safe. For more information visit the Government of Saskatchewan COVID-19 website.
