COVID-19 Protocols

Since the Cronyn Observatory is located on Western University’s campus, we follow the COVID-19 Protocols issued by Western University. At this time, this implies that visitors to the Observatory are required to provide proof of vaccination (with 2 doses of vaccines) upon entering the Observatory. Inside the Observatory, wearing a mask is encouraged, but not enforced.
