COVID-19 – Sinneave Programs and Services Updates

This notice was updated on September 13, 2022.

The health and safety of our staff, program participants, visitors and partners is of top priority for The Sinneave Family Foundation. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and are following the advice of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer and Alberta Health Services.

The following are some of the measures we have implemented to ensure we continue to meet the needs of the community to the extent possible, while at the same time enabling physical distancing measures and following other best practices for containment and risk reduction:

  • The Ability Hub is open to the public.
  • Please Note: The Ability Hub is a UCalgary site and therefore required to follow UCalgary pandemic masking guidelines.
    Beginning Monday, May 2, masks will no longer be mandated in public areas on campus.
    However, given that individuals have different health and risk profiles, we invite visitors to make their own decision about mask wearing. Masks remain available on-site and will be worn when there is a preference to do so.
  • We continue to postpone most non-urgent business travel and practice physical distancing in face-to-face meetings wherever possible.
  • We continue to offer web-based communications and services where preferable and appropriate.

We will be updating our website regularly with information about any impacts on programs and services. You may also subscribe to our newsletter to receive information on Sinneave programs, services and activities.

If you have any questions, please email us at info@sinneavefoundation.org or leave a message at 403-210-5000 (Toll Free 1-888-733-7976).
