St. Clair College at Ace Acumen strongly encourages all individuals to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations as soon as they are eligible. Please note that the following is subject to change as the pandemic evolves and as new information becomes available.
St. Clair College at Ace Acumen will follow public health and government guidance related to COVID-19 safety protocols and measures. Due to the severity and extent of the most recent upward trend in COVID-19 occurrence and transmission, St. Clair College at Ace Acumen will be mandating vaccinations or regular testing for all staff and students. St Clair College at Ace Acumen will request that our staff and students voluntarily disclose their vaccination status. Additional information will be forthcoming once the policy is finalized by the end of the week. There will be a section within the policy describing exclusionary grounds for unvaccinated individuals: health difficulties substantiated by a qualified medical practitioner, including allergy to the vaccine(s); and other grounds covered by the Ontario Human Rights Code; or for those who wish to not disclose. Arrangements will be made for such individuals to receive self-administered “rapid testing” for COVID-19 twice weekly and report their results.
Please be advised that St. Clair College at Ace Acumen’s third-party partners (e.g. placement agencies, co-op employers and service providers) may have different standards and COVID-19 safety measures in place. St. Clair College at Ace Acumen has no oversight over its partners’ standards and COVID-19 safety measures. Compliance with those standards and COVID-19 safety measures will be the responsibility of the student.
