Covid-19 Protocols for Fall

NSCAD has been working with NS Public Health and other local universities to determine how best to prepare for the return to campus in September in the context of a still active COVID-19 virus. Please note NSCAD’s latest COVID-19 protocols below, which become effective September 1, 2022.    

  • Masks will be required in the library and in all indoor classrooms, studios and shops at all three NSCAD campuses, including Extended Studies courses.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged in other common areas of our campus.
  • Although proof of full vaccination is not required, we strongly recommend everyone be up to date with their vaccinations, including boosters. 
  • Please stay home if you are sick and only return to campus once you no longer have any symptoms. 

Full protocols can be viewed on NSCAD's website. Please email with any questions you may have.
