Latest news

Nova Scotia has lifted COVID restrictions including gathering limits, social distancing and mask restrictions. At Dalhousie, most restrictions have been lifted but mask requirements will remain in place a little longer as we help our diverse and complex community transition into a lower-restriction model of work and study.

  • Masks are to be worn in most indoor common spaces on campus (with the exception of residence) until at least June 10.
  • Vaccination: As of May 1, the Campus Check program has been suspended. Students, faculty and staff do not have to provide proof of full vaccination to work or study on campus.

As we move through our phased approach, we will continue to strongly encourage and promote health and safety best practices that are in our collective interest as a Dal community.

COVID resources

We all have a responsibility to look after our own health and safety and the health and safety of our Dal community. This includes staying home if you're sick and following provincial protocols for testing and self-isolation.
