COVID-19 Update for the Campus Community

November 17, 2020 9:20 AM

On Friday, the Ontario government updated the provincial COVID-19 response framework to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Based on these new thresholds, the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) region moved from the prevent (green) level to the protect (yellow) level, effective Monday, November 16.

Since September 18, Western has been operating in a modified phase 3 of our Return-to-Campus plan, which is compliant with the Province’s new classification.

What does this mean for Western?

There are no new operational changes required over and above the current measures in place on campus and there is no impact on classes or research activities at this time.

We continue to work closely with federal, provincial and local health officials, and should things change, we will communicate with you via email, social media and the university’s dedicated COVID-19 website.

Let’s keep doing our part

The health and safety of Western’s campus community is a shared responsibility. We must continue to take thoughtful and persistent steps to take care of ourselves, each other, and our community:

Together, we can create a safer and healthier campus community.

Thank you for continuing to do your part.
