COVID-19 update

Sept. 23, 2021

We take the health and safety of students, faculty and staff very seriously. With rising COVID cases and new government regulations, it is important for us all to do what we can to prevent the spread of the virus. We would like to thank the UNB community for the overwhelming support as we navigate new government regulations.

The COVID testing program adds an additional layer of protection to the numerous health measures already in place on our campuses. Over the past three weeks, we have implemented the COVID testing program and participants in the testing program have begun submitting testing results.

Effective Monday, Sept. 27, 2021, all faculty, staff and students who are engaging in on-campus activities and in-person classes are required to complete mandatory, regular COVID-19 rapid testing. Individuals who demonstrate proof of full vaccination are exempt from rapid testing.

For those individuals who are not in compliance with the testing requirements or who do not have a vaccination exemption, or for whom accommodation has not been granted, you will not be permitted on campus.

If you have not provided proof of vaccination or have not started the rapid testing program, you will be considered in violation of the COVID testing policy and the non-compliance sanctions in section 10 of the policy will apply. Your dean or director, or People & Culture/SJ Human Resources will contact you directly to discuss the implementation of these sanctions.

Contact us immediately at if you have submitted your vaccination information but have not received an email notification that your application was successful or if your application status is incorrect on the UNBSafe app.

See COVID-19 rapid testing for more information on how rapid testing works, how to submit proof of vaccination and refer to the testing and vaccination frequently asked questions for further details.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping the UNB community safe.

Kind regards,

Paul J. Mazerolle
President and Vice-Chancellor
