Important updates

Nova Scotia has lifted COVID restrictions including gathering limits, social distancing and mask restrictions. At Dalhousie, many restrictions have been lifted but some university COVID measures 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.

Measures that are extended until June 10 include:

  • Masks will continue to be required for most indoor common spaces and other appropriate settings until at least Friday, June 10. More information on where masks are required can be found here. Masks will also be required at Spring Convocation ceremonies in May and June in both Halifax and Truro; more detailed instructions will be sent to invitees in the coming weeks. 

Tips for Students Engaging in Blended Learning on Campus

  • Where will you join class? If you need to join your online class on campus, look for an available classroom that isn't being used for teaching at the time when you need to "attend" your virtual class.
  • Will you need to use your microphone, speakers and/or camera to participate? Many synchronous classes will require you to work with others in virtual groups or ask for your individual contributions to class discussions. Be sure you have a working headset at all times and use filters (if possible) to diguise your background.
  • What about seating and space? Choose a spot that isn't close to other students. Remember to keep your distance from others and always wear your 3-ply mask!
  • I'm having an issue participating in class. Who do I contact?Always contact your instructor or TA if you have an issue participating in class. They can best advise you for their particular class or virtual lab.
