Fanshawe School lifts vaccination and masks mandates for fall semester – London


Fanshawe College is lifting its mandatory mask and vaccination guidelines as students return to in-person study for the fall semester.

The college reports that 65 percent of classes will be in-person, and on-campus residences will be near full capacity.

School officials say the decision to lift the requirements is based on recent advice from the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

“Students and staff are strongly advised to mask themselves indoors and keep up to date with recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Peter Gilbert, Fanshawe’s chief infrastructure officer.

“We will continue to follow the advice and recommendations of our regional health authorities, which may include reintroducing some COVID-19 protocols during the academic year as the need arises.”
