Coming to campus
The safety of our SAIT community is important and it takes all of us to protect it. SAIT employees and contractors should visit SAITNOW for additional information.
Do not come to campus if you:
- have tested positive for COVID-19 or are being tested
- are a close contact of someone who has COVID-19
- have tested negative — you may still be required to isolate
- have one or more COVID-19 symptoms
- don’t intend to follow COVID-19 safety protocols.
If you're unsure about whether to come to campus, stay home and consult Alberta Health Services.
Before coming to campus
Complete this form every day prior to accessing campus. Safety Ambassadors wearing yellow SAIT T-shirts will confirm you’ve completed the form upon entry at designated entrances.
Information gathered in this form is kept confidential and only shared for purposes of building access and contact tracing if requested from Alberta Health Services. Individuals who have not completed this form before entering campus will be denied entry to campus buildings.
If you have a pre-existing condition or require more support visiting campus, contact Accessibility Services to find out what accommodations might be available to you.
While you're on campus
- Follow Government of Alberta safety protocols and keep classes on and COVID away. Those who don’t comply will not be allowed to remain on campus.
- Physical/social distancing is no longer required. For those on campus in labs or other work settings, be mindful this change may be easier for some than others. Please respect those who may require a little extra space and time in adjusting to the lifting of this requirement.
- As vaccination targets are reached and hospitalizations decline, and in alignment with the Government of Alberta’s Stage 3 reopening, SAIT is lifting COVID-19 protocols and the requirements of masking and physical distancing while indoors, effective July 1, 2021. In order to ensure everyone’s personal safety and security, SAIT remains a controlled campus, with no public access to buildings.
- Use designated building entrances only and follow traffic-flow signage.
- Disinfect work areas, tools and equipment before and after use.
- Know who to call — if you’ve been on campus with symptoms, are a close contact or have a confirmed case, call the 24/7 hotline at 825.413.1763. If you become ill while on campus, notify your instructor who will escort you to an isolation space for next steps.
- Carpooling is permitted.
What we're doing to keep you safe
