The Ontario Government declared a state of emergency and announced new COVID-19 measures this afternoon. A stay-at-home order is set to take effect on Thursday at 12:01 am ET. It will require people in Ontario to remain at home, with exceptions for accessing health care, groceries, pharmacy services, essential work, and for exercise.

Queen’s is committed to implementing these new measures as quickly as possible and will be providing more details and guidance shortly about how the new measures will impact university operations.
