Masking at Sheridan
Ontario’s Ministry of Health has issued a recommendation that individuals wear masks while indoors to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the flu and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
While Sheridan’s mask and vaccine policies haven’t changed, pursuant to the November 14, 2022 recommendation from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Sheridan encourages everyone who comes to campus to wear a mask and remain at home if feeling unwell.
Sheridan encourages everyone who comes to campus to wear a tight-fitting mask. Medical masks are available on campus at designated locations.
What to expect on campus
More than 95% of Sheridan programs have at least some in-person learning for Winter 2023. You can expect a vibrant on-campus experience with most of our services and activities returning to pre-pandemic levels.

How Sheridan is keeping you safe on campus
As we have throughout the pandemic, we continue to focus on our shared responsibility to maintain the health and safety of our community. We work in partnership with our local and provincial public health partners to determine the extent to which our on-campus health and safety measures will remain.
Cleaning & disinfection: We clean and disinfect frequently touched areas in common spaces at least twice daily and disinfect all of Sheridan’s public spaces once daily. In labs, studios, workshops, and offices, Sheridan community members are encouraged to clean equipment, materials, and workstations before and after use. Medical masks, cleaning wipes, and hand sanitizers are available for students and employees to use at designated locations throughout campus.
Physical distancing in common spaces and offices
We ask that students and employees continue to be respectful of individual preferences for keeping more distance in line-ups, classrooms and offices. Students and employees are still required to have their onecard with them at all times when on campus.
Masks and PPE: Sheridan no longer requires individuals coming on campus to wear a mask. However, we remain a mask-friendly community, and encourage everyone who comes to campus to wear a tight-fitting mask if they feel it is the right choice for them. Medical masks are available on campus at designated locations.
Monitoring positive cases and outbreaks: In alignment with public health processes, Sheridan will provide specific information about your COVID-19 situation based on the information shared with us.

Vaccines: While we still encourage everyone to get vaccinated, including booster shots, Sheridan is pausing its requirement for vaccines or rapid antigen testing. Vaccines are available through many pharmacies and community clinics.
Ventilation upgrades: The airflow and ventilation in our spaces has been analyzed and evaluated, and filtration systems have been replaced pursuant to recommendations from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for COVID-19. We continue to undertake measures to reduce the risk of airborne contaminants.
