Heading into Winter 2022

As post-secondary institutions in New Brunswick get ready to move into the Winter 2022 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 a new variant of concern (Omicron), further travel restrictions have been imposed nationally, and our Provincial Government has announced new guidance for the winter season. Because of this, University leadership is evaluating our own operating parameters in order to ensure that we are prepared for any changes that may be required under New Brunswick’s 3-level winter plan.

The approval of a vaccine for children aged 5-11 is welcome news in the effort to combat the virus and reduce its spread. University administration will continue to monitor guidance on the rollout of vaccination for this age group, and at this time we continue to expect that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus age 12 and up be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and for visitors to sign in upon entry.

Many will be aware that Rapid Point of Care Test kits are available from NB Public Health, and may be obtained at pickup locations across the province, including Moncton. The University also has test kits available for campus housing residents for whom a rapid test has been recommended.

All students, staff, and faculty members are reminded to be self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19, and to follow recommendations by Public Health regarding testing and/or isolation. Further information on testing, vaccination, and current restrictions in New Brunswick are available on the Government of New Brunswick website.

Updates to Crandall’s operating parameters are sent out first by email to Crandall University accounts, followed by updates on the Crandall website.
