COVID-19 Information

Western remains mask friendly and committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment on campus. Public health officials across the country agree that COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future, and as we learn to live with it, we will continue to adjust and adapt.

Let’s work together by:

  • Staying up to date with relevant vaccinations
  • Staying home when feeling sick, washing hands often, and covering mouths to cough or sneeze
  • Wearing masks for a period of up to 10 days following an illness when in crowded indoor spaces like large classrooms

Additional public health advice can be found through the Middlesex-London Health Unit website.

COVID-19 vaccines and flu shots

University community members may receive a COVID-19 vaccination at a pharmacy in London.  Vaccinations will be available through Health and Wellness Services from October 30, 2023 through to November 10, 2023.  We expect to receive vaccinations effective against the latest variants for the COVID-19 virus as well as influenza.

We strongly encourage individuals to update their vaccine series. Please speak with your family doctor or health care provider regarding any vaccine-specific concerns.

Students are encouraged to visit Health and Wellness Services for more information.
