 oving forward towards the end of the pandemic.

For the meantime, masks will optional for staff and students on MaKami campuses. We also strongly encourage all staff and students to continue to follow physical distancing guidelines and to continue to sanitize work surfaces and high-contact touch points on campus. Temperature checks and the daily wellness survey will continue to be required to access to campus for the time being. Due to the success we have had throughout the past year with digital learning, we will continue to hold theory classes online for the time being. We will continue to reevaluate these measures throughout the summer as we wait and see the progress of Alberta’s reopening.

Classes are running in a blended format, with theory and practical instruction and lab classes in person, as per the most recent Covid-19 guidelines provided by the Government of Alberta. Practicums, field work and other activities that must be hands-on or in -person have been permitted to continue as well.
