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.
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.
Please be kind. SAIT community members are expected to respect the right of those choosing to wear a mask.
If you choose to continue wearing a mask:
- Wear masks with at least three layers to stop the spread of COVID-19. SAIT is currently distributing three-layer disposable masks.
- Free masks are available at:
- Campus Security 24/7 at the Eugene Coste Building – Q100
- SAITSA Resource Centre, Monday to Friday 9 am to 4 pm at the Stan Grad Building — MC107
- Present your valid SAIT ID to receive your free masks.
Putting on your mask:
- Wash hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer prior to handling the mask and when taking it off.
- Ensure the mask fits over the nose and under the chin.
- Situate the face mask properly with a nose wire snug against the nose (where applicable).
- Tie straps behind the head and neck or loop around the ears.
- Throughout the process, avoid touching the front of the face mask.
Disposal and care of masks:
- Disposable masks must be thrown away in lined garbage receptacles located throughout campus.
- Store cloth and reusable masks in a sealed bag until they can be washed in hot, soapy water.
- Wet, torn or dirty masks should be thrown away. Masks should be changed regularly and changed when damp.
Additional information on mask usage is available from the Government of Alberta.
Masks are no longer mandatory, except:
- on municipal and intra-provincial public transit for people 13 and older
- at AHS operated and contracted facilities and continuing care settings
- continuous masking must be followed for up to 5 days following mandatory isolation due to COVID infection for vaccinated individuals. For more information, see the isolation page.
You may be asked to wear masks in some community health settings to keep yourself and others safe, such as pharmacies, physiotherapy clinics or family doctors' offices.
