To CBU Student Community,
Late this afternoon, Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Nova Scotia, announced new COVID-19 restrictions for Nova Scotia and strongly recommended other public health measures to keep our communities safe. These new restrictions were sparked by rising COVID-19 cases and new variants in the Province.
In light of today’s announcement, Cape Breton University will pivot from its original plan to move to Level 4 of its Return to Campus Plan to a modified Level 2 starting tomorrow (Monday, April 26, 2021.) These new measures will be in place for two weeks. The health and safety of our students, employees and the entire Cape Breton community remains our priority. Thanks to the excellent work of the Return to Campus Committee, we were ready to respond quickly.
Return to Campus Plan – Level 2 (modified)
This is a pivotal time for our Province. If we are going to defeat this wave of the virus, we must all continue to do our part. This is not the time to get complacent. Follow public health protocols, participate in asymptomatic testing, and watch for your opportunity to get vaccinated. Stay safe and be kind to one another.
Yours very truly,
David C. Dingwall
President & Vice-Chancellor
Cape Breton University
