COVID-19 Operating Parameters

COVID-19 Operating Parameters

Updated January 14, 2022

Crandall University’s COVID-19 Advisory Group is committed to position the University in full-compliance with directives and suggestions from the Government of New Brunswick and NB Public Health. In response, the following parameters have been approved to reflect the most current advice received from provincial officials.

It is expected that all members of the Crandall University community be fully vaccinated to increase the level of protection for the health and well-being of others in our community.

In addition to promoting vaccination for community members, the following parameters will guide our regular operation:

  1. Masks are to be worn at all times while inside academic buildings, except while actively eating. Employees may remove masks while working in their office.
  2. Out of respect for the health of our students and employees, campus visitors age 12 and up 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.
  3. Distancing:
    • classrooms and other gathering spaces will return to building code capacities;
    • stanchions, as well as other useful markings and signage will be retained in some locations to assist in foot traffic management;
    • Access to the Fitness Room and other athletic facilities will continue to be managed by Chargers Athletics.
    • The Dining Hall will be accessible to on-campus residents with a meal plan.
  4. Other operating principles include:
    • Self-monitoring for symptoms continues to be expected regardless of vaccination status, including seeking testing if recommended by Public Health;
    • Sanitizing supplies will continue to be available in classrooms and other spaces;
    • Sanitizing procedures will continue to be implemented between classes;
    • Visitor sign-in sheets will remain at the main entrances to Murray Hall and Stultz Hall.

Guidelines while under Level 3 of New Brunswick’s Winter Plan

At 11:59pm Friday, January 14, 2022, New Brunswick will enter Level 3 of the Province’s Winter Plan. While at this level, the following parameters will guide Crandall’s operation:

  • Academic buildings will be open to essential Crandall University Community members or essential workers only.
  • Residences will be restricted to tenants only, and residents will adhere to single-household bubble guidelines.
  • Academic programs will operate under blended delivery, with on-site teaching limited to essential classes of 20 or fewer students.
  • Conference Services will be suspended.
  • The Dining Hall will be available only for on-campus students with a meal plan, and seating will be reduced to allow additional physical distance.
  • Indoor co-curricular activities will be suspended or moved online where feasible.
  • Chapel experiences will take place online only.

All parameters are subject to change based on the latest guidance from the Government of New Brunswick and NB Public Health. Crandall students, faculty, and staff should monitor their university email accounts for the latest updates and additional information.
