Covid-19 Update

North West College is monitoring COVD-19 and continues to follow the recommendations of the Chief Medical Health Officer of Saskatchewan.  The health and safety of our staff, students and community is of utmost importance, and continues to be our primary focus during this time.

While the Province of Saskatchewan has now entered Phase 1 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan, we want to remind our North West College community that Saskatchewan remains in a State of Emergency.

Phase 1 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan includes:

  • The re-opening of some medical services that were previously restricted, and the resumption of some low-risk outdoor recreational activities. Please visit Phases of Re-Open Saskatchewan for further details on services that have been re-instated, allowable recreational activities, and guideline during this phase.
  • Physical distancing must be observed at all times, with a minimum of two-meters of space between individuals; and  
  • Public and private gathering will remain at a maximum of 10 people.

North West college students and staff continue to study and work from home.

Restricted Access to Campus:

Access to both College campuses will remain restricted for staff and students. Employees must continue to acquire permission from their Director to gain access to any College facility. Once permission is granted, the employee must discuss details with Harvey Anderson, Facilities Manager to ensure your request is properly accommodated within expected health and safety protocols in place. When on campus, staff are asked to limit their movements to their individual work stations.

How we, as an institution and a province, respond to Phase 1 (May 4) and Phase 2 (May 19) will directly impact when we as a Province are able to enter Phase 3 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. A new confirmed case of COVID-19 in Meadow Lake only reinforces how important it is to adhere to the social distancing regulations and campus access restrictions as we continue to nurture the tenuous progress we have made.

From the Executive Management of the College, thank you for your vigilance as we continue to flatten the curve of COVID-19.
