Laurentian University has released its phased “return to campus” plan amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
A press release from the university said the plan provides flexibility to adapt and comply with public health and government protocols.
Each phase outlined on a web page allows units to permit students and employees to have a gradual, rotational, and periodic presence on campus. The dates of each phase are subject to change depending on directives from government or public health authorities.
Ensuring the health and safety of the campus community is paramount, and meeting physical distancing requirements is critical, said the press release.
