Updated: Nipissing University Update on Coronavirus

Nipissing University continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation. As of today, the risk of community transmission in North Bay remains low. The University follows the advice of Public Health authorities and at this time classes and events continue. 

It is important to continue to check travel and public health advisories, which are listed below, as this is an evolving situation. 

Those that have returned from international travel should monitor for symptoms. Those who develop symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing or any other symptoms within 14 days after returning to Canada, are advised to avoid contact with others and contact Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000), your health-care provider, or local health unit. Inform them about your symptoms and travel history.

The best way to protect yourself is through prevention.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick

We will continue to keep our community informed of new developments through the Nipissing University website and urge those seeking information to consult trusted sources such as Ontario.ca/coronavirus.

Symptoms of the coronavirus include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Should you experience these symptoms AND have recently travelled internationally to an affected region, avoid contact with others and contact your health-care professional or nearest hospital.

In an effort to keep our campus community informed, please see our Frequently Asked Questions from the NU Community About Coronavirus. We will continue to provide updates on this website as more information becomes available.
