Due to concerns with rising cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, and in consultation with KFL&A Public Health, Queen’s University will be transitioning most Winter 2022 academic activities delivered in Ontario to remote delivery until the end of reading week on February 28, 2022.
This is a proactive measure to support the health and safety of the Queen’s and Kingston communities and align with Ontario’s accelerated booster dose rollout for all individuals aged 18 and over.
With some very limited exceptions, which are themselves subject to change should public health considerations require it, all courses will be taught remotely until February 28, 2022. A decision on the format for classes on and after that date will be made in early February. For those academic activities that will continue in person in January, comprehensive safety measures will be in place to ensure students can meet the academic requirements of their program. Students will receive further communications in the coming days from their Faculty or School Office regarding the delivery mode for all activities in their particular program.
