Information on Accessing Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering Spaces

Research: All activities that have been approved may continue, but new applications are suspended. Please refer to the main Queen’s Covid-19 information page.

Teaching: Instructors who need to use their offices for teaching related work may do so.

Undergrads: Only undergrad thesis students and design students can use facilities in Miller/ Bruce building (after discussion with me, the TA’s and their advisors/supervisor). FAS will allow students conducting individual 4th yr thesis/ design projects to work on campus at the end of the lockdown as long as they have been in the Kingston region for at least two weeks with no COVID-19 symptoms or contact with a positive COVID case before returning to campus. Based on the current expectations that the lockdown will expire on January 23, 2021, this would permit thesis students to start on-campus work the week of January 25, 2021 as long as they were back in Kingston by January 11, 2021. I will advise the students of this via onQ, but as faculty supervisors, please emphasize. 

Grads: Grad students may not use their offices during the lockdown period, but can continue to access the buildings for research work already approved. 

Queen’s Response to Province-Wide Shutdown

As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise rapidly across the province, the Ontario government has announced a province-wide shutdown that will go into effect as of December 26 and last for 28 days. During this shutdown period, Premier Doug Ford is advising all Ontarians to stay at home to the fullest extent possible, noting that travel outside your region should be limited to only essential purposes. More information on Queen’s response to Province-wide shutdown (PDF, 424 KB)

Preparing for Red-Grey Zone Measures: Phased Reduction in On-Campus Presence Framework

As cases of COVID-19 increase locally and across the province, we need to prepare for changes to university operations over the coming weeks. A Phased Reduction in On-Campus Presence Framework has been developed to ensure university operations align with the various colour zones under the Government of Ontario’s COVID-19 Response Framework. More information on the Phased Reduction in On-Campus Presence Framework (PDF, 340 KB)

Queen's launches refreshed COVID-19 website

The university community continues to rise to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, working together to keep one another safe and ensure learning, research, and innovation are moving forward. To support these efforts, Queen’s has launched a redesigned COVID-19 Information website with an emphasis on the most sought-after information, usability, and shareability in mind. The site features a prominent COVID-19 case tracker that provides updates whenever a COVID-19 case is confirmed within the Queen’s community. It also features important links to public health information, and the latest updates from the administration on changes to university operations, academic changes, health and safety announcements, and more. It also features a student section to connect students with services, resources, and faculty-specific information, as well as a faculty/staff page to connect employees with human resources, IT support, and research. Go to the new Queen's University COVID-19 website.
