Following the announcement on March 31, 2020 by the Ontario government that all schools in the province will remain closed until May 4, and that non-essential businesses must remain closed, King’s will continue to operate largely as a virtual campus until May 1, 2020.
Essential operations and services related to our residence for the students who must remain with us will continue. They are successfully practicing physical distancing. We remain operational onsite using limited staff, maintaining the campus. All employees will continue to either work remotely or onsite as required. This status may change as the situation evolves.
Course delivery using online resources will continue without face-to-face gatherings including no in-person exams. We have full confidence we will finish the academic term with new assessment models in place. As well, we will offer our summer courses online. Students can reach King’s via the King’s Call Back form with any questions related to academics, student services, enrolment, finance and more.
We are taking these concrete steps to support the recommendations of public health, and the Prime Minister’s statements, to help combat the spread of COVID-19. We continually update our campus via our website and social media channels including @kingsatwestern (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and @kingsprincipal (Twitter and Instagram).  
All buildings were locked and further sanitized on March 16, 2020. Those faculty and employees with swipe access or keys will be able to access their offices if absolutely necessary but you must alert security prior to entering a building, unless you are part of the essential operations. We understand this may be difficult for some of our faculty and staff, however in these unprecedented times, we are all working together to adjust to serve the public interest.
Despite these challenges, King’s remains a strong community. We are continuing to process offers of admission for the fall, provide virtual student support services, campus ministry services, financial services, IT services, enrolment services and academic support services including digital library resources.
Thank you all. Please take care of yourself. Take care of each other. We will take care of this place.
Dr. Dave Malloy, King's Principal
