W.K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library

Masks are required in all indoor classrooms and instructional spaces, supported by the high-quality ventilation standards set throughout the pandemic.

Masks continue to be welcome in other indoor spaces and are strongly recommended in libraries and learning commons as well as gathering spaces where physical distancing may be difficult (for example, hallways, lobbies and elevators).

All members of our Dalhousie community are expected to stay home when sick. Dalhousie has procedures in place to support students, faculty and staff in doing so.
