The university goes on to say that it will continue to monitor public health directives and will be ready to adapt its plans if needed.
Guelph joins the University of Waterloo and Conestoga College in forgoing mask and vaccine mandates for students and staff for the upcoming school year.
Meanwhile, Wilfred Laurier University and Western University are both mandating the use of masks at their campuses.
Western is also requiring their students and staff to have a third COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.
