St. Francis Xavier University

To the Campus Community

 

The situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve with three presumptive cases now being reported in Nova Scotia. StFX remains committed to evolving our strategies in response to the latest developments. It is with that in mind that I inform you of the latest decisions:

 

  • The StFX campus will be closed to the external community/general public as of 5:00 PM today, Sunday, March 15, 2020. The closure will remain in effect until April 30, 2020. (Exceptions are parents picking up students, and the foyer, 3rd floor Bloomfield for Maritime Bus Services).

 

  • The Alumni Aquatic Centre, gyms and ice surfaces within the Amelia Saputo Centre and Keating Centre will close for all users (including students) as of 5:00 PM today. If your department is affected by the closure of these areas, please contact your supervisor about your work schedule.

 

  • Students will continue to have access to all other facilities on campus and are asked to respect social distancing protocols.

 

  • All internal and external in-person events will be cancelled for the duration of the closure.  This includes but not limited to sports camps, conferences, church services, etc.

 

  • We will adapt our operations to further reduce the number of visitors on campus. For example, Campus Tours and in-person HR interviews will be suspended during the closure.

 

  • All administrative buildings and offices will remain open. 

 

COVID-19 presents a number of unprecedented situations and challenges for the campus community. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to work through these trying times.
