COVID-19 Update: March 18 - Student access to campus

Conestoga is committed to the safety of our staff and students. National, provincial and local public health agencies are asking all community members to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Conestoga is taking steps to support this goal by lessening the number of people on our campuses. 

There is currently no student activity on campus, however, we realize students may have materials they will need to complete their semester still on site. To help facilitate the retrieval of these items, certain entrance doors will be open this Thursday and Friday (March 19 and 20) from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The number of students who enter the building at one time will be limited to ensure social distancing. Please be patient. Security staff will be on hand to guarantee the process runs safely and efficiently. 

Students will be asked to present their ONECard when entering the building, and then exit through the same door to have their ONECard returned. Please respect all those on campus and retrieve the items you need in a timely fashion before leaving the grounds. 

Entrances open March 19 & 20, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
