A message from Dr. David Malloy, King's President:

By remaining dedicated to our masking procedures and vaccination policy, we have all done our best to take care of ourselves, take care of each other and take care of this place during the academic year. I know it has been tiresome at times to adjust to the ongoing shifts of the pandemic. I want to thank everyone for your efforts. We previously stated that the masking and vaccination requirements would remain in place until the end of the academic term. However, we must ensure that these efforts have not been in vain by relaxing our health and safety protocols too soon. 

Western has sent out an email stating their decision to continue the use of masks for indoor spaces on campus and their vaccination policy until at least the end of June. King’s and the other affiliates, Brescia and Huron, will also continue to require three-layer non-medical masks and adherence to our vaccination policy for all people who study, work, live on, and visit our campus.

King's fully supports Western's decision, which has been made in consultation with the Middlesex-London Health Unit and medical experts. We will also continue to require people to wear masks indoors on our campus and for members of our community to be fully vaccinated (two doses). We strongly encourage everyone to get booster doses, which can be booked through Western’s Vaccination and Testing Centre.

Some things to keep in mind as we go forward: 


Study Spaces 

All study spaces at King's are open at full capacity with masks required. Food and drink are permitted in these areas and masks may be removed only when you are seated for eating or drinking. 

Cardinal Carter Library 

The Cardinal Carter Library is open for quiet and silent studying and all services are running as normal. Masks continue to be required. No food is permitted in the library. However, lidded beverages are welcome, with mask removal allowed only when actively drinking. 

Aramark/Food Services 

In all eating spaces, masks may be removed while seated for eating and drinking.

King's Fitness Centre 

The Fitness Centre is open for full use. Masks must be worn. 

I want to thank all of our students and employees for their understanding and patience throughout the past two-plus years. I am proud of the way the King's community has responded, working together to keep our community as safe as possible.
