At the University of Waterloo, we value each other as individuals. We all belong here. Fostering our spirit of genuine care and concern is crucial at a time when many people are feeling scared or nervous about the COVID-19 outbreak. We must show empathy and concern for people in our community who are affected by the virus and work together to stand against racism of any kind.

We understand that many of our employees have family members in areas affected by COVID-19. If you feel overwhelmed or anxious and need to talk to somebody, please access the Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP) program by calling 1-800-663-1142. For more details on EFAP please review the Employee impact section of this document.
