Updated: Operating protocols for Fall 2021

As post-secondary institutions in New Brunswick get ready to welcome students to campuses this fall semester amidst an ongoing pandemic, all share a common commitment and concern to provide safe campus environments.

Guided by the counsel of the Province’s Public Health officials, the leadership of Crandall University is working to provide a safe environment for students and employees to work, live, and study, and to provide as pleasant and enjoyable a campus experience as possible.

In light of the recent appearance of the COVID-19 Delta variant in our local area and the growing number of local COVID-19 cases, especially among unvaccinated individuals, the University leadership has determined that it is prudent to update Crandall’s previously-announced COVID-19 operating parameters for the Fall 2021 term.

The Crandall University Board of Governors and Administration both recognize the demonstrated public health value of individuals being fully vaccinated and expect that students, faculty, and staff be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To help facilitate this, the University will be hosting free on-campus vaccination clinics where students and employees can receive first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on September 9, 2021 and October 14, 2021.

The University will make rapid testing kits available to campus housing residents who believe they may be manifesting COVID-19 symptoms and are being directed by Public Health authorities to consider getting tested. People who do not reside on campus but experience COVID-19 symptoms should contact New Brunswick Public Health’s Tele-Care information line (811) and follow the instructions provided.

Masks are expected to be worn when employees, students, and visitors enter the academic buildings and while they move throughout these buildings. Employees and students are encouraged to consider wearing masks in other locations on and off campus where they would feel safer and better protected by doing so.

Out of respect for the health of our students and employees, campus visitors who are eligible to be vaccinated are expected to be fully vaccinated, and when they arrive on campus are expected to sign in at the main entrances to Stultz Hall or Murray Hall.

Please note that the operating parameters are subject to change should the conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic change and/or directives from Public Health New Brunswick or the Government of New Brunswick.
