Fall Campus Reopening Plans


As noted above, StFX shall remain operational under very specific conditions. We have based our decisions on how the university will proceed in its operations on the latest health reports from the Public Health Agency of Canada, on careful conversations with other universities but, most importantly, following the advice of Nova Scotia Public Health.

The university has activated a committee to oversee our pandemic preparedness. The mandate of the committee, chaired by Randy Peters, Director of Risk Management, is to ensure the safety of our community, including keeping the university community informedand to monitor and develop contingency plans that address conditions that may affect operations and programming.
