Health and Safety on Campus

The safety of our SAIT community is important and it takes all of us to protect it.

SAIT will continue to assess the ongoing health situation in our province and make necessary adjustments to ensure the health and safety of our community.

COVID-19 case management and support, with emergency response and contact tracing, will continue as allowed with the cooperation of those involved.

Are you sick or a close contact?

Help is available.

If you’ve been on campus with symptoms, are a close contact or have a confirmed case, see COVID-19 illness management for guidance.

If you become ill while on campus, notify your instructor/leader who will assist you through our first aid procedures.

Do not come to campus if you:

  • have tested positive for COVID-19 or are being tested
  • have one or more core COVID-19 symptoms.

If you're unsure about whether to come to campus, stay home and consult Alberta Health Services.

Before coming to campus

Anyone coming to campus should monitor their health status for possible symptoms of COVID-19 every day to help protect others and prevent the spread.

If you have a pre-existing condition or require more support visiting campus, contact Accessibility Services (for students) or Employee Services (for employees) to find out what accommodations might be available to you.

While you're on campus

SAIT continues to promote healthy and safe learning, working, and living environment.

Mask wearing at SAIT

The mask mandate has been lifted. Though masks are no longer required, please consider wearing a mask for an added layer of protection indoors in both public and private settings, especially around those not in your household. People at risk of severe outcomes should wear medical masks when in settings with people outside of their household.

Please be kind. SAIT community members are expected to respect the right of those choosing to wear a mask.

COVID-19 hygiene

In addition to wearing a mask and getting vaccinated, practicing good hygiene habits can protect you and those around you from spreading COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses.

  • Wash or sanitize your hands often.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Avoid touching your face.

Please continue with proper community health and hygiene habits, including frequent handwashing and respiratory etiquette.

  • For those on campus in labs or other work settings, continue to be mindful of personal and social distancing.
  • Do your part in minimizing congestion in hallways, avoid taking the elevator if you can take the stairs easily.
  • Disinfect work areas, tools and equipment before and after use.

What we're doing to keep you safe

  • As a continuing component of COVID-19 illness management, SAIT will inform those who have COVID-19 symptoms or tested positive of the legal requirement to isolate and remain away from campus and will accommodate those persons as required.
  • SAIT COVID-19 illness management will continue, with an awareness of high-risk settings and high-risk activities (e.g. SAIT residences).
  • Hand disinfection stations and protective barriers will remain or be installed across campus.
  • Cleaning and disinfection of common areas and high-touch surfaces by our custodial staff will continue. 
  • Facilities Management is performing the following air filtration recommendations from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE):
    • SAIT is installing the highest Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rated filters that each system can accommodate. As we upgrade a system’s ability to bring in more air and push that air through the system, we will also upgrade filtration.
    • Based on class schedules, we have programmed our air systems to increase the number of air changes before and after occupancy to flush the air from the buildings.
    • During occupancy, we will introduce as much outside air as possible.
    • Facilities Management will continue routine maintenance to ensure air handling units are running at optimal performance.
  • Health promotion and awareness efforts will continue. COVID-19 is a vaccine-controllable disease, and we will continue to promote and support first and second doses for our community members.
  • We are encouraging people to keep to a capacity of four to six people per elevator (depending on the size of the elevator). Where possible, individual elevator capacity may be controlled through a safety ambassador.
  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed in service locations where there is regular potential for close contact with others.
