COVID-19 Update

To the University of Windsor Campus Community

In an effort to further support the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students, effective Monday, July 27, 2020, the University of Windsor will require all employees, students, visitors and contractors to wear a non-medical mask or face covering when entering  all campus buildings and in common spaces where physical distancing may be difficult (entrances, exits, hallways, stairwells, lounges, washrooms and elevators).

A COVID-19 mandatory non-medical mask policy has been approved and will become effective Monday, July 27, 2020.  This policy further supports the Windsor Essex County Health Unit’s order which requires that face coverings be worn in commercial establishments and the recommendations by the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada for individuals to wear face coverings in situations where physical distancing (spatial separation of individuals by at least two metres) is difficult to maintain.


Please note that there are Campus Community Police personnel stationed inside the office at all times who can respond to any matter that requires assistance   

Signs have been posted on the Campus Community Police front door indicating how to contact Campus Community Police should the need arise.  Our contact information is as follows: 

  • dialing 519 253 3000 ext 4444 for emergency issues 
  • dialing 519 253 3000 ext 1234 for non-emergency issues
    or
  • by dialing 911 at any time 
    • (dialing 911 from your cell phone will go directly to the Windsor Police 911 Communications Centre)
    • (dialing 911 from a University landline or campus emergency phone will go directly to the Campus Community Police Dispatch Centre)

We are hopeful that this change will assist in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 across our campus community.  As a reminder Campus Community Police provide a 24-hour presence on our campus to respond to routine and emergency calls including police, fire and medical requests for service.     

We would also like to take the opportunity to advise everyone to practice their Social Distancing skills by avoiding large crowds, avoid shaking hands and by trying to stay at least 2 metres away from others as much as possible.
