COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Information

The First Nations University of Canada will provide regular updates on COVID-19. We are working to ensure all communications for students, faculty and staff are provided on a regular basis as there may be questions that arise.

With the new Public Health Measures coming into effect Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 12:01am, the University will continue to abide by all measures required by the Chief Medical Health Officer. As of December 14, 2020, these new measures will be in effect until January 14, 2021.

Details on the new measures in effect for December 17, December 19 and December 25, 2020 can be viewed on the Saskatchewan COVID-19 Public Health Orders website.

All campus locations will implement Mandatory Masks as recommended and all indoor spaces within the University will include:

  • Public areas of a university or college campus, such as library or student union building, classrooms, hallways and other common areas, but not labs, offices or residences (dormitories)

Please review the information on masks and usage at www.saskatchewan.ca/masks. There is a short video on how to wear a non-medical mask.

A friendly reminder on the safety protocols we should follow:

  • If you are sick, please stay home!
  • Wear your mask when in public spaces at all times as per new public health measures (November 19th)
  • Wash your hands frequently and for the required amount of time (20seconds).
  • Use hand sanitizer, if unable to wash hands regularly.
  • Maintain social distancing of 6 feet when in public spaces.
  • Limit activity considered high-risk, such as social gatherings, or crowded places. The maximum allowable limit within a family residence is now at 5 people
  • Avoid close contact with people outside of your home (handshakes, hugs, etc.).

All faculty, staff, sessionals, students and visitors must continue to check-in with Surveillance Screeners at assigned entrance (East Entrance). The Surveillance Screeners will ask the questions in the Screening Form before you enter the campus.
