Coronavirus COVID-19 Information

Queen’s University administrators are actively monitoring reports on the evolving outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 that can cause acute upper respiratory illness and pneumonia. Protecting the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty, whether on campus in Kingston, at SmithToronto, the Bader International Study Centre (BISC), or elsewhere in the world, are our primary concerns, ​and we are continuously assessing what may be required in response to any spread of the virus.

The information on this website continues to evolve, so check back regularly.
