Reminder and third dose of COVID-19 vaccine available to 18-24 year olds 

The fight against COVID-19 is being waged on several fronts. We would like to take this opportunity to remind the entire university community of a few instructions and to inform students that they will have access to a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as of tomorrow. 
Vaccine booster dose 
The Quebec government has extended the availability of the COVID-19 booster dose to the 18-24 year old population. We encourage the student community to make an appointment on the Clic Santé portal starting tomorrow, January 14.  
Over 94% of the university community is already adequately protected. This additional dose will provide everyone with better protection against COVID-19, including the Omicron variant. 
Fallback plan in effect until January 30 
The temporary fallback plan to begin the session remotely is in effect, except for those activities where students' physical presence is required for learning. This plan will end on January 30 as announced. Until then, as usual, we are working with public health authorities to ensure your safe return to class. 
Reminder of the main health instructions currently in effect 

  •  It is mandatory to wear your surgical mask everywhere and at all times when you are inside a building or an underground corridor of Université Laval, including the corridors and common areas of the student residences on campus.  
  • A distance of two meters must be maintained between people in work areas, including employee rooms where it is possible to eat, have a coffee or take a break. Masks must still be worn. 
  • You may temporarily remove the mask to eat or drink. You must put it back on between each bite and sip.  
  • Meetings and team work should be conducted via collaborative platforms.  
  • Extracurricular, social, and cultural activities should be kept at a distance.  
  • All physical training in underground hallways and stairwells is prohibited even if done on an individual basis. 
  • Gatherings are not permitted. 

Adherence to these guidelines is essential to ensure the safety and health of individuals on campus. To view all current health guidelines, you may visit the Campus Health Guidelines page. 
Postponement of the date of withdrawal without failure and with refund 
The drop date without failure and with tuition refund for regularly scheduled courses has been extended to January 31.  
Drop dates with refunds for specially scheduled courses are also adjusted accordingly. You can check the recalculation of this date for each of your courses. For more information, you can consult the Registration section in monPortail. 
Isolation period and declaration 
The Quebec government has announced new guidelines regarding contact management and the duration of isolation periods. In keeping with these guidelines, we remind you that you may not report to campus if: 

  • You have a positive test result (PCR or rapid) for COVID-19.  
  • You have symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • You live in the same household as someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. 
  • You are in a relationship or are the sexual partner of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. 
  • You are awaiting a test or test result for COVID-19 and have symptoms of COVID-19.  
  • Public Health recommends isolation for any other reason. 

Isolation Statement 
In any of the situations mentioned, you must isolate yourself and inform us promptly by completing the declaration form that corresponds to your status, either student or staff member. The duration of the isolation and the return to the campus are in accordance with the criteria recently established by the government. We remind you that the declaration of isolation also applies to telecommuting staff members. 
Need support or time to breathe?    
If you are experiencing psychological difficulty or distress, please contact the Centre d’aide aux étudiants, consult the resources in the coffre à outils on the staff intranet, on or Mon équilibre ULaval.  

Do you have any questions?  
If you have any questions, email or contact your faculty.  

Until the fallback plan is lifted, we encourage the student community to stay the course. We look forward to you being able to fully resume your face-to-face activities and also reclaim the campus.
