Information Related to Respiratory Illness, including Covid-19, for Spring 2023
Welcome back! As we move into the 2023 Spring semester, the College will continue to follow current public health recommendations as they relate to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses prevalent in the public this Spring. Please find below a summary of the current College requirements and recommendations.
We continue to encourage all staff and students to stay up to date with their vaccines as recommended by Public Health. This is still the best protection against serious illness.
We continue to request that staff and students stay home if they are feeling unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Public Health Ontario COVID-19 assessment tool provides direction on next steps if you have symptoms, have been exposed or are looking for guidance.
A Provincial Testing and Isolation Information Line is available at 1-888-777-0730 (toll-free), every day from 8 am to 6 pm to answer questions on the latest guidance.
We continue to encourage individuals to wear a tight-fitting, well-constructed mask if they feel it is the right choice for them. Masks can be accessed from College Staff.
We continue to encourage diligent hand hygiene. Wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer frequently. Sanitizer will continue to be available in key locations throughout the buildings.
Sanitizer and cleaning product will continue to be available in classrooms, lounge areas and tool cribs.
