COVID-19 Update: As of July 1, masks no longer required on NSCAD campus

With the summer semester rapidly approaching, we would like to update you on NSCAD University’s COVID-19 protocols.

As of July 1, 2022, masks will no longer be required on NSCAD campuses. There may be members of the university community who choose to wear masks, and we support everyone’s right to do so.

Note: masks will be required for the Extended Studies summer camps.

As always, we will monitor the status of the pandemic and continue consulting with Nova Scotia Public Health. Should anything change, we are prepared to reintroduce our COVID-19 protocols as appropriate.

Our enhanced cleaning protocols will remain in place, including routine cleaning of common touch points and frequent replacements of air filters. We will also continue to offer rapid tests in the NSCAD Service Centre while supplies last.

We ask that everyone continue to:

  • Monitor for symptoms: if you feel unwell, stay home.
  • Share positive COVID-19 results with so that we can monitor the virus’ presence within our community.
