COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)


UPDATE – November 25, 2021: Update for Winter Term and Vaccine Verification 

Full vaccination required for Winter 2022 Term 

Further to our previous update, Red Deer Polytechnic has determined that all students and employees must be fully vaccinated or have an approved Red Deer Polytechnic exemption for Winter 2022 Term (starting January 1). This applies to those who are on campus and to those who are learning and working online. Additional details are available on our website.  

Vaccine Verification using the SAFE RDC App 

Red Deer Polytechnic is implementing digital vaccination verification for all students and employees using the SAFE RDC app. This verification process will help to streamline access to campus by providing students and employees with an approved, Red Deer Polytechnic-specific QR code. This will be required starting January 1, 2022. 

Learn more on the Vaccine Program webpage: 

The vaccine verification process will begin November 29 and will end in December
