Starting September 1st, everyone on campus who is not fully-vaccinated or doesn’t want to disclose their status will have to complete regular rapid testing. Those who have two-doses of vaccine will be exempt and anyone who can’t be vaccinated or tested for medical reasons can request an accommodation.

Non-medical masks will also be required in all areas where physical distancing isn’t possible.

In line with provincial protocols already in place, those who have COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive for the virus will be required to self-isolate.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
