MRU to require those in classrooms, labs, gatherings to wear masks

August 19, 2021
Mount Royal University has announced that it will be requiring masking in classrooms, labs, and other indoor gathering spaces with over 20 people as its community returns to campus. People will also be “strongly encouraged” to wear masks in meeting areas and hallways, and MRU will implement protocols to reduce congestion. Though MRU has not said that it will make the COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory, CBC says the university has hinted that its vaccination policy may be updated in the future. “There are many signs of change when it comes to requirements for people to disclose and/or be vaccinated,” read a statement from MRU.
