With all mandatory public health measures in Alberta lifted, we remind members of the NAIT community that we all have a shared responsibility to keep our community safe.
On this page, you will learn more about current health and safety measures and how you can help keep our campuses safe.
Health and safety measures on campus
We encourage everyone coming to our campuses to be fully vaccinated and to get their booster shots as soon as they are eligible. Vaccination against COVID-19 remains the best way to prevent severe illness and death, and booster shots can prolong immunity to improve protection and limit spread.
Wearing a mask or face covering
We support the use of masks in all public spaces on our campuses and at NAIT facilities. Masks continue to be required in Health Services offices or where masks are part of the standard personal protective equipment.
We have upgraded our air filtration in many areas on campus to the recommended Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) levels. We are driving more outdoor air wherever possible, and as our air intakes are typically on rooftops or away from where people are, there is minimal likelihood of entering viral particles.
Stay home if you are sick
We recommend that staff and students stay home if they are sick.
Planning for a safe campus
Leaders are required to complete Communicable Disease Hazard Assessments for their area by identifying and assessing risks and implementing appropriate infection prevention measures to reduce COVID-19 exposure.
Training for staff and students
We have developed training for staff, students and contractors that will help them:
- protect themselves and others from potential exposure to COVID-19
- reduce the risk of infection in the event of an exposure
This training is no longer required, but is available to view as a resource.
Sanitizer and disinfecting spray
Hand sanitizer and disinfecting spray are available at campus main entrances and in high-occupancy areas.
Signage regarding hygiene, cleaning and current safety measures is posted across our campuses. Use the QR code on campus signs to access the latest safety information.
Regular, timely communication
We are committed to keeping the NAIT community informed as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Continue to check nait.ca/covid19 for the latest information and updates.
Thank you for doing your part to keep the NAIT community safe.
