St. Lawrence College Will Drop Vaccine and Mask Requirements, May 1 

placeholder logo

St. Lawrence College (SLC) will be ending its campus COVID protocols on May 1, 2022. Specifically, this means that: 

  • Proof of vaccination upon entering SLC facilities is no longer required 
  • Wearing a mask will become a personal choice, not mandatory to be on campus. Note that should anyone wish to keep wearing a mask their decision will be respected, and SLC will continue making masks available from campus security offices. Medical masks are still required in some labs and learning settings, so they will still be seen around campus. 
  • Submitting proof of a negative rapid antigen test for those with an approved exemption is no longer required 
  • Passive screening remains in effect. Information will be posted and the provincial self assessment will continue to guide decisions.

“These changes bring us in alignment with practices across Ontario, however I would like to reiterate that anyone showing any symptoms of illness to please stay home,” said Glenn Vollebregt, SLC President and CEO. “We know that the loosening of public health restrictions does not mean COVID is gone – we still have an obligation to be considerate and to continue protecting the health of our colleagues, students, and campus community.”
