As we prepare for the return to on-campus operations and in-person classes, the health and safety of our campus community remain our top priority. The AMS wants to ensure students are informed on the current COVID-19 restrictions, policies, and guidelines at Queen’s, and how they will affect various aspects of students returning to campus this fall. In preparation for your arrival on campus, we have outlined below the most up-to-date information on how we are working in partnership with the University and public health authorities to facilitate a safe, supported, and collaborative on-campus experience for students.

The information and recommendations surrounding COVID-19 are ever changing, and the advice of public health authorities continues to guide Queen’s return to campus planning. The AMS will continue to do its best to keep students up to date on information and resources. Please always refer to official government websites for confirmation on policies, regulations, and questions regarding COVID-19. As well, please consult specific faculty websites for guidance on non-Kingston campus operations, orientation week, and academic accommodations related to COVID-19.

Thank you for keeping our community safe.
