AUArts COVID-19 Updates

Latest Update

November 15, 2022: Over the past few weeks, we have noticed an increase in illness within the community. As such, we would like to remind everyone not come to campus if they are feeling unwell or have tested positive for COVID-19.

  • COVID-19 & Short-Term Illness Reporting Process
    If you have tested positive for COVID-19, and have been on campus within the last 48hrs, please send an e-mail to and include the date, time, and location when you were last on campus.
  • Masks
    Health Canada currently recommends wearing masks in indoor settings as “masks are one of the most effective individual public health measures that we can use to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19.” Masks are available at the Security Office and the Info Desk.
  • Cleaning Protocol and Hygiene
    We currently have enhanced cleaning protocols in all indoor settings and on high touch surfaces. A reminder that items that are loaned, or made freely available for use by multiple individuals, such as tools, equipment, materials and supplies, should be regularly cleaned and disinfected. Additional hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the building.
  • Vaccinations
    We strongly encourage all members of the AUArts community to get vaccinated. 
  • Respectful and Healthy Work and Learning Environment
    Everyone accessing the campus is urged to use respect for those around them. Your comfort level may not be the same as those around you. Compassion for others is key, and each individual is encouraged to find their own comfort level and be courteous to those whose personal circumstances and comfort may not match their own.
