UPEI recommends that you seek information from official government sources as they are continually updating their websites:
Anyone who feels unwell, thinks they may have been exposed to COVID-19, and/or has developed COVID-19 symptoms should call 8-1-1.
As indicated in the?Message to Students?on March 13, 2020, because the situation with COVID-19 is changing rapidly, the University of Prince Edward Island advised that it may need to suspend in-person classes prior to the previously announced date of March 20, 2020.
With the?PEI首席公共衛生辦公室?announcing on Saturday, March 14, 2020 that there was?a first confirmed case of COVID-19 in the province,?the University of Prince Edward Island?decided to suspend in-person classes and in-person labs effective Monday, March 16, 2020.
This decision to suspend in-person classes, labs, and exams represented?a measure to reduce large gatherings of people in line with?physical distancing?advice from the PEI首席公共衛生辦公室. Any course delivery would occur?through alternative means—in most cases, this meant?email communication and/or online delivery through tools such as Moodle, Google Meet, Collaborate, etc.
指令是從星期一暫停，3月16日至星期五，3月20日，2020?to allow instructors time to focus on transitioning to alternative course delivery, and develop their plan for teaching through to the end of the semester. Instruction resumed on March 23, 2020 via alternative methods. In-person classes, in-person labs, and in-person exams did not resume during the Winter 2020 Semester.
All courses for the Summer 2020 Semester (First Summer Session, May 11–June 18, and the?Second Summer Session, July 6–August 21) have been moved online?except 臨床輪轉獸藥和臨床課程的護理學院任教。?

Research at UPEI
Research is a vital part of UPEI. As an institution of learning and discovery, we are committed to research and innovation, and providing positive impacts for our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for all of society, including higher learning. The University began a partial return to campus on May 25, 2020, the starting date for Stage One of UPEI的操作簡便回計劃. UPEI’s plan follows the guidance of the PEI首席公共衛生辦公室 and features measures unique to our institution. This is not business as usual. It will be a graduated return for some activities, including research and graduate studies.
Stage Two of UPEI的操作簡便回計劃 始于2020年6月15日。?Faculty, researchers, graduate, and now undergraduate?honours?students are able to conduct?research activities on-campus and in the field, provided they can maintain physical distancing and follow all other guidelines outlined in Stage Two.

Working at UPEI

Individuals can continue to work from home if approved by their supervisors.

The focus of this stage will be preparing for the Fall 2020 Academic Semester.?Major changes for Stage Three include: strongly recommending the wearing of masks while in buildings; unlocking campus buildings from 8 am to 5 pm; broadening the scope of who is able to be on campus; and resuming UPEI-organized events, upon approval by the Vice-President Administration and Finance.
