On March 22, 2020, the Province of Nova Scotia declared a State of Emergency as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. A Health Protection Act Order by the Medical Officer of Health implemented a number of public health directives to help contain the spread of COVID-19, including the requirement for social distancing, restrictions on gatherings, requirements for self-isolation upon entry to Nova Scotia and the closure of some businesses and services.
Now in the spring of 2021, as the Province continues to reopen, Cape Breton University will resume limited on-campus activity. This Plan has been developed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus and
in the community and outlines how Cape Breton University will comply with the Health Protection Act Order and other Public Health Directives to ensure the safety of the campus community.
