Be informed about the specific measures put in place
this fall for everyone's safety!

The National Institute for Scientific Research is closely monitoring the pandemic of the new coronavirus causing COVID-19 disease. A committee has been set up to regularly communicate the prevention instructions and measures announced by the Quebec Ministry of Education and Higher Education as well as important information concerning the entire INRS community.
We are aware that these measures, which must be applied immediately, have important effects for each and every one of you. We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding in the circumstances.

Mask wearing at INRS af of July 18, 2020 


To all members of the student community,


In compliance with the most recent directives of the Direction de la Santé publique, we inform you that as of Saturday, July 18, the wearing of masks in INRS establishments will be mandatory in all common areas - such as corridors, common areas, bathrooms and elevators - as well as in places where it is impossible to respect a distance of 2 metres. Removal of the mask will only be possible once seated in your office or classroom, if the space allows the minimum physical distance of 2 metres, and in compliance with the specific directives of each establishment, which may go beyond these minimum instructions.


If you unintentionally fail to bring your mask to one of the INRS establishments located in Quebec City, Montreal, Varennes and Laval, a mask can be given to you upon request. In addition, INRS will acquire masks that will be distributed to the entire community in the coming weeks.


Once again, in the current context, we thank you all for your understanding and collaboration.


INRS General Management
