UWaterloo implements new COVID-19 measures for students, staff

August 11, 2021
The University of Waterloo is implementing new COVID-19 measures for those on campus. UWaterloo students and staff will be required to self-declare their vaccination status before coming to campus, and attendance will be automatically reported through UWaterloo’s wireless network. Starting September 1st, those who have not been vaccinated or who do not indicate their status will be given information about public health measures and vaccination and will be directed to a rapid antigen testing screening program. Unvaccinated students will be expected to undergo COVID-19 antigen screenings twice a week, and those who have positive test results must take an on-campus COVID-19 test and self-isolate.
