Covid-19 Information

Currently, Western requires all staff, students, and visitors to provide proof of vaccination and to wear a mask while indoors, except when eating or drinking. We expect that these policies will still be in place at the time of the conference. All attendees should therefore be prepared to show proof of vaccination and wear an appropriate mask indoors. 

More specific information about Western’s policies can be found at the links below.
