Sheridan Alert! app

You can download Sheridan Alert! for free. To complete the COVID-19 health screening:

  1. Click on “Coronavirus Disease COVID-19” and then select “COVID-19 Screening Assessment”
  2. Complete the assessment
  3. Show the results to security when asked. 

If you are unable to access the Sheridan Alert! app, Security will ask the same questions in-person.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Once you have a Sheridan-issued medical mask, you can temporarily remove the mask you wore to campus to switch. During this time, everyone must stand at least two metres apart. The short time when masks are being switched is not considered a significant risk by public health experts. Double-masking is not necessary and wearing a medical mask over a non-medical mask is not recommended at this time.

Masks

Masks are always required except when eating or drinking (while maintaining physical distancing). Sheridan provides ASTM-rated (American Society for Testing Materials) medical masks each day at the check-in.

Eye Protection

Where people will be within two metres of each other for more than a short time (e.g. passing others) eye protection such as a face shield, safety glasses, or safety goggles is recommended.

Resources

How to Don and Doff PPE (Poster) - how and in which order PPE such as medical masks should be worn.

How to Store a Non-Medical Mask Between Uses –how non-medical masks should be stored.

A non-medical mask should have at least two layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. An additional filtering layer between the layers is recommended. The mask should cover your nose, mouth and chin.

For information about proper use and care, please see these guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Security

Security is on campus 24/7 and people are at the Welcome Desk late into the evening. Security can escort you to your car if needed. Sheridan has 147 emergency phones inside buildings and on the grounds at Trafalgar, Davis and Hazel McCallion. Emergency phones call Security directly and a security guard is sent to the phone’s location in the event of an emergency or immediately upon request. Take a few minutes to program your cell phone with Sheridan Security, 905-815-4044. They can also be reached from any Sheridan landline telephone at extension 4044.

Employees with requests or questions about accessing campus, should contact security@sheridancollege.ca.

Wayfinding Signs

Upon entering, and when on campus, you will see several wall signs and floor decals providing information and restrictions, directing foot traffic in narrow corridors and stairwells (e.g. ‘one way’), and indicating where to line-up and wait for classes, the cafeteria, and printers, etc. These signs are in place to enable physical distancing and for the health and well-being of all Sheridan community members.

Bathrooms and Water Fountains

Please try to use a washroom close to your classroom, office, or lab. You will notice signs showing physical distancing guidelines. Water fountains are available to fill up water bottles.
