SAIT established COVID-19 face mask protocol
For the safety and protection of our community, SAIT requires the wearing of masks (clean cloth, procedural or surgical mask) in indoor areas on campus (building common areas, labs and classrooms).
To support compliance with this requirement, there is now a SAIT established COVID-19 face mask protocol.
