Keeping you safe

How is NorQuest keeping people safe from COVID-19? 

Since March 2020, NorQuest has followed directions from Alberta Health Services to keep our college campus safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. The college continues to monitor the situation and introduce safety measures as needed. The health and safety of NorQuest students and employees are our top priorities. 

Starting August 30, non-medical face masks must now be worn in all public indoor areas at NorQuest College where physical distancing is not possible. This measure will help maintain a healthy and safe learning environment. We encourage everyone to use their own face masks, but masks will be available as needed. 

Starting September 20, NorQuest College will require all students coming to campus to undergo regular rapid testing for COVID-19. Those who are fully vaccinated are exempt from this requirement. 

Students who are not fully vaccinated, and those who would prefer not to disclose their vaccine status, will need to regularly complete a rapid screening test and receive a negative result before they participate in in-person activities on the NorQuest campus. 

These measures have been developed to support the health and safety of our college campus, and follow similar measures announced by other post-secondary institutions in Alberta. These measures will remain in effect until the end of the fall 2021 term.
