On-Campus COVID-19 Protocols

As of May 1, 2022, and continuing until further notice

Atlantic School of Theology continues to seek to do all we can to protect the health of our students, residents, personnel, and guests. 


The province of Nova Scotia currently has no public health regulations in relation to COVID-19 that apply to our campus. However, in light of the continuing circulation of COVID-19, AST encourages the following practices: 

  • Stay home if you are unwell or exhibit symptoms of illness, including COVID-19.  
  • Masks are encouraged in all shared indoor spaces (e.g. hallways, lobbies, washrooms, classrooms). Instructors and worship leaders may remove their masks when speaking, as long as distancing requirements can be maintained.   
  • Physical distancing is encouraged, where possible. 
  • Vaccination is not mandatory but encouraged, except in the residence (see below).  
  • On-campus events, classes, and worship services may take place, with attention to physical distancing wishes and needs of those present.  

AST will continue to require full vaccination for those staying in a Residence room as a part of the Residence agreement, including Summer term 2022. Those who rent a room in Residence are not required to wear a mask inside the Residence building.

AST continues to follow and adapt to the approaches recommended by Nova Scotia‚Äôs Public Health department.
