Did you know UNB has formed a COVID-19 Response Team?

The team has been working diligently to ensure accurate information is available, and the UNB community feels safe, supported, and that processes are in place to deal with numerous scenerios should they occur.

 

What if I have questions about what is happening at UNB?

Questions can be sent to Communications, and they will ensure the correct parties are included in the response.  Unb.ca/coronavirus has also been created to be the central UNB source of credible information.  Student Health has created COVID-19 information and resources aimed more at health information and health processes.  

 

Who will direct individuals to isolate or quarantine?

If you have travelled outside of the Atlantic Provinces you are required to complete a 14 day self-isolation.  If you have symptoms, CALL 811 (Public Health) for screening.  Public Health will provide medical directives following a health evaluation, and identify support required for individuals.  UNB will follow direction from Public Health, and has COVID-19 Response Plans in place, should they be needed. Questions about isolation can be submitted to selfisolationhelp@unb.ca
