St. Lawrence College (SLC) has announced that they will no longer require masks to be worn on campus or in SLC facilities, with the exception that PPE is a requirement for their learning or work environments. The mask requirements will be officially dropped on June 1st.
“The College will continue to provide medical grade masks at security offices on each campus for any SLC students or employees who wish to have one,” wrote SLC on Tuesday.
SLC says that its Campus Health Centres will continue to require masks, “as this is in keeping with different infection control requirements within clinical health setting.” Those who require a mask will be provided one. Specific programs and labs that have a PPE requirement will continue with processes currently in place.
Queen’s University’s mask mandate is also slated to end this May unless a review finds that there is a need to continue the requirement.
At the Royal Military College of Canada, mask mandates are still in force, however the Federal Government recently announced that federal government workers are no longer required to wear masks while sitting at desks and in meetings when physical distancing is in place.
