COVID-19 Info


Considering government instructions and the current vaccination campaign, UQAT offers almost all the training and research activities planned for the 2021 fall session to be in person in its campuses and centres. These orientations were adopted by the studies committee as well as the board of directors following various consultations with various players in the university community.

Health and Safety: a priority for UQAT

The health and safety of members of the university community are always the priority that guides all decisions. Thus, this mainly face-to-face offer involves adjustments and is carried out in compliance with the various health measures aimed at preserving the health and safety of all.

Major orientations for fall 2021

  • The health measures recommended by the public health directorate are applied for all teaching and research activities as well as for work.
  • Until further notice, travel outside of Canada for all staff and students must be pre-authorized.
  • Psychological support is a priority.

Centres and campuses can be accessed. However, an individual cannot have access to UQAT’s premises in cases where any of the following apply:

  • they have symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing;
  • they have been in contact with a person who has COVID-19 within the last 14 days;
  • they are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 screening test;
  • they are required, by public health authorities, to remain in preventive isolation.

Any individual to whom one of these situations applies must declare their state of health by filling out the Health Declaration form (see links below). These individuals must remain at home, and wait for Human Resources to contact them and inform them of the measures they must take before returning to UQAT.

Declaration of State of Health

General Guidelines for Fall 2021

For the students registered in face-to-face programs:

  • Classrooms are set up as they were before the pandemic, without physical distancing, to accommodate more people.
  • Wearing a procedural mask is mandatory at all times when a two-metre distance cannot be maintained, including in classrooms and at all times when travelling in the premises. Please note that procedural masks are provided free of charge in the main entrance of the various campuses and centres.
  • In the food courts, a two-metre distance must be maintained between the students and between the tables, thus allowing snacks and meals to be taken while respecting the two-metre rule.

*Extracurricular activities are permitted for the next session. The details will be given during each activity.

We wish you a return to our campuses and centres in the fall in a climate of humanity, creativity and audaciousness!
