3 seasonal steps to supporting inclusion
Now more than ever, it’s important to recognize and celebrate the diversity in our communities. Ensuring our campus is a more inclusive place to work and study is a shared responsibility, and it’s not as hard as you might think.
✨ Try these tips to support inclusion this holiday season from SAIT’s Associate Director, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion John Partington.
Report your runny nose, really
Do your part to keep classes on and COVID-19 away from campus — follow the guidelines and use your head, stop the spread.
- Feeling ill — runny nose, cough, fever, sore through, shortness of breath?
- Stop — do not come to campus, complete the AHS COVID-19 assessment or call 811 for advice.
- Inform — tell your instructor.
- Isolate — isolate for 10 days or until your symptoms are gone, whichever is longer.
- Test — positive? Isolate for 10 days or until your symptoms are gone, whichever is longer. Negative? Quarantine for 14 days if you have known exposure to COVID-19.
