CALGARY – Another post-secondary institution in Calgary is announcing its protocols to keep people safe from COVID-19.

Starting Monday, SAIT will be mandating masks for all indoor classrooms, labs, and public spaces.

In addition, the school is also exploring the use of rapid testing as another health and safety measure.


On Tuesday, the universities of Calgary, Alberta, and Lethbridge announced they would institute rapid testing for anyone who is not fully vaccinated, and require masks in many indoor settings.

Several other universities around the country are mandating vaccines and will bar anyone from campus if they are not protected from COVID-19.
