IMPORTANT: AUArts changes as result of Alberta’s State of Emergency
NEW: Rapid Testing and Vaccine Requirements
September 16, 2021: To allow us to return to campus in-person learning as planned, effective September 22, 2021, we are implementing the following for anyone coming to campus, including visitors, that they must provide either:
- Proof of full vaccination, OR
- A negative COVID-19 rapid test within the past 72 hours, available through the authorized AUArts partner
As all classes begin in-person on campus on September 22, anyone who does not voluntarily declare they are fully vaccinated must participate in rapid testing. AUArts is making a free rapid testing program available which will be in place until November 14, 2021, allowing everyone more than enough time to be fully vaccinated.
After November 14, 2021, if you do not verify you are fully vaccinated or have an approved accommodation, you will NOT be able to enter campus. For the safety of all, there will be no exceptions. Read the full update.
