COVID-19 and Return to Campus Updates
Information for the Sheridan community
Sheridan has strict health and safety measures in place to protect the students, faculty, and staff who are required to be on campus at this time, in limited numbers. This page is the primary resource for information regarding our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and our procedures for safeguarding our community’s health, protocols for accessing campus, and reporting of symptoms or diagnoses.
Here you will also find information on available support resources, parking and campus services.
Please note; the situation is rapidly and continually evolving. Updates to this page are made frequently. Please continue to check back for the latest information.
Your health and safety is our top priority, and we’re ready to protect you during any in-person activity your program may require. That includes even more intensive cleaning protocols, maximum head counts on all of our campuses, screened access to campus, enforcement of physical distancing, mechanism to report and alert the community about illnesses on campus.
Sheridan has been added to the Government of Canada's Designated Learning Institutions list, with an approved COVID-19 Readiness Plan. This designation confirms our eligibility to welcome international students travelling to Canada. To learn more about the DLI designation, please visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada site.
While our campuses will provide limited access to those who require on-campus/in-person programming, we're still here to support everyone!

Obtain Your Winter Access Sticker on Your First Day
New and returning students arriving on campus: please go to the B wing main entrance at your respective campus to obtain your access sticker for the term. These stickers will be handed out at a table near the entrance after you pass through the security screening station.
Face Masks must be worn on campus
Sheridan requires everyone to wear a non-medical face mask or a face-covering when arriving on the campus (during active screening, and hallway travel to classroom/work location).
All employees and students will be provided with and required to use a Sheridan-issued medical mask following their arrival. The medical masks will be available at the entrance in classrooms or in office locations.
Eye Protection on campus
Where people will be within two metres of each other for more than a transient interaction (e.g. passing by others), eye protection (i.e. a face shield, safety glasses, or safety goggles) is also required.
Proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
Once you retrieve a medical mask in your class, you can temporarily remove the non-medical mask you wore to campus to put on the medical mask. During this time, everyone must stand at least two metres apart from one another and remain stationary. The short period of time when the masks are being switched is not considered a significant risk by Public Health. Double-masking is not necessary and wearing a medical mask over a non-medical mask is not recommended at this time.
- How to Don and Doff PPE (Poster) - provides information on how and in which order PPE should be worn (including medical masks).
- How to Store a Non-Medical Mask Between Uses – provides information on how non-medical masks should be stored while not in use.
- A non-medical mask should have at least 2-layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. An additional filtering layer between the 2-layers is recommended. The mask should cover your nose, mouth, and chin.
- For information regarding proper mask/face covering use and care, please see these guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada and these guidelines from the Ontario Government.
