COVID health and safety update

Message from Diane Hiebert-Murphy, Provost and Vice-President (Academic), and Naomi Andrew, Vice-President (Administration)

The well-being of the UM community remains our top priority in these times of growing concern. As we continue to monitor the Omicron variant, we are enhancing health and safety measures under the guidance of medical experts.

As communicated in President Benarroch’s message on December 20, from now until the end of the Winter Term break on February 26, 2022, all non-essential activity will continue remotely. Only those staff members deemed essential are to be on campus during this period. All other staff are to work remotely. Course activity has been moved to remote delivery wherever possible. For further information, students can connect with their faculties, and staff can reach out to their supervisors.
