To the Campus Community,
As cases of COVID-19 surge across the province, it is critical that we act together as a community to help keep each other healthy and safe, especially in light of the newest and highly contagious Omicron variant. With the holidays quickly approaching it is important that you know we at CBU are monitoring the situation and continue to make science-backed decisions with guidance from Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert Strang. These decisions are always made with the health, safety and well-being of our community in mind.
The CBU Campus will reopen as scheduled on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. However, considering what we know about the situation right now, we have made the following decisions ahead of the return to campus in January and will operate at a modified level 4 of the Return to Campus Plan. This means:
This slow and controlled approach will allow us to decrease the population density on campus as we return from the break, while also allowing us to maintain important business operations and provide an exceptional student experience. More information regarding registration deadlines and any additional changes will follow in the new year.
During this holiday season, please remember:
As always, we are prepared to pivot should we need to at any time. Please continue to protect each other and be kind. I wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
