28-day Challenge – Break the COVID Wave!

Graphics showing how to break the COVID wave: cough in your sleeve, wash your hands, keep your distance, cover your face, limit your travel

Along with our community, Bishop’s is mobilizing itself against COVID-19 for the next 28 days! Everyone must remember five important actions:

  1. cough in your sleeve,
  2. wash your hands,
  3. keep two metres of physical distance at all times,
  4. cover your face if keeping a distance of two metres is not possible, and
  5. limit your travel.

We don’t want to be hit by a second wave! Let’s do it: for ourselves, for our loved ones, our colleagues and neighbours. Let’s do it to get back to normal life as soon as possible. Let’s take up the 28 day challenge, let’s break the COVID wave.

(NEW) COVID-19 Protocols for Fall 2020 Semester

The COVID-19 Task Force has worked diligently with all services and departments of Bishop’s University to develop protocols that aim to keep our community healthy, safe, welcoming and sustainable as we begin the Fall 2020 semester.

Please read those protocols closely, and adjust your own behaviour accordingly, to protect yourself individually and our community collectively from the risk of COVID-19 contagion.

While no amount of precaution can completely eliminate the risks posed by the current pandemic, we must remain committed to make every effort to control manageable risks, in order to uphold our priority concern for the health and safety of our community.
