Health and Safety

Western continues to follow public health guidelines and works closely with the Middlesex-London Health Unit. Our plans are designed to prioritize safe and secure learning and research environment while being responsive to the changing government regulations and public health protocols.

The French Immersion School adheres to Western's health and safety guidelines.


As of November 29, 2022, based on consultation with medical experts and local public health, Western revoked the vaccination policy and will no longer require students, employees, and visitors to be vaccinated to come to campus. Please visit the FAQs page for additional information.


As of February 6, 2023, Western has moved from mandating masks in instructional spaces to strongly encouraging masks in crowded indoor spaces like large classes. This move is aligned with the advice of public health.
