March 19, 2020

Some postsecondary institutions are requiring students to move out of residences amid the COVID-19 outbreak. In Ontario, students at Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, McMaster University, Brock University, Ryerson University, and the University of Toronto have been asked to move out as soon as possible. The institutions have also indicated closure dates for their residences that will apply to all students except for those with exceptional circumstances. Memorial University in Newfoundland is also asking students who can leave residences to do so by Sunday to limit student numbers on campus. CBC | The Star  CBC (ON, NL)
