Covid-19 Guidelines

Northern Lights College’s General Guidelines

At this point, NLC’s regulations can be summarized in a few clear points:

  1. If you feel unwell, do NOT come to campus. This rule is always applicable, whether you believe your illness to be COVID-19, a simple cold, or something else.
  2. We strongly advise all staff and students to be fully vaccinated, including boosters as needed/available.

    • Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to be respectful of individual choices concerning masks based on each person’s comfort.
    • Indoor common area mask requirements for employees as part of the Workplace Safety Order are no longer required.
  • Removal of proof of vaccination requirements:

NOTE: Public health measures and restrictions may be reintroduced depending on the evolving COVID-19 situation.
