4) Guide to Financial Supports and Programs
Student Life, St John's campus, has created a comprehensive Guide to Financial Supports and Employment Programs. The guide is an overview of resources that have been developed and made available to members of the Memorial University community in in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. This is a dynamic document that will be continually reviewed and updated. The guide can be accessed here

9) Take care of your health

Physical health services:

If you have influenza-like symptoms, please call 811 or complete assessment tool on line, www.811healthline.ca. Do NOT proceed to hospital without calling 811 or completing the tool.

If you want to make sure your symptoms should be assessed by a health care provider,  call  811 because it could decrease unnecessary long visits to the non emergency clinic  (Outpatients department, Western Memorial Regional Hospital).

All those clients with cough, shortness of breath, fever, runny nose need to be processed through 811.

If there are any other reasons that you want to see a doctor, go to the non emergency clinic  (Outpatients department) at Western Memorial Regional Hospital to be seen in the fast track clinic.  If you're uncertain whether to go to hospital,  call 811.

(Some pharmacies also may have some options, for example, Shoppers Drug Mart also has free access to virtual care through their website. A call to your pharmacist might  be helpful, especially if your question is related to medication.) 

Psychological services:

Please visit the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre (SWCC) website  or Grenfell’s Counselling and Psychological Services website  to access a number of online and phone-based community mental health and wellness supports. 

You may also access the on-line resources listed above. If you’re in Corner Brook and have an urgent mental health issue, you can also avail of:

24-hour mental health crisis line: (709) 737-4668 (local) or 1-888-737-4668 (province-wide).

Doorways Walk-In Clinic: 35 Boone’s Road, (709) 634-4506. Hours: Mondays 9-4:30 p.m.; Tuesdays 1-9 p.m.; Thursdays 9-4:30 p.m.

10) Update on Fall Convocation 2020 in Corner Brook and St. John’s

Given the current extraordinary circumstances related to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Memorial University postponed Fall Convocation 2020 ceremonies that were scheduled for October in St. John’s.

Since an opportunity to walk across the stage and accept a hard-earned degree is the culmination of years of hard work for many students, the Fall Convocation ceremonies will be rescheduled  for those graduates who wish to participate. New dates will be determined based on venue availability in St. John’s and Corner Brook; details will be released when they are available.

Additionally, in October 2020 the university will conduct an in absentia graduation to ensure that graduating students are awarded their degree, diplomas and certificates in a timely manner. Memorial held its first in absentia graduation in February. You can read more about that process at https://gazette.mun.ca/student-life/level-of-service/.
