As part of our shared responsibility in making a return to campus safe and successful for everyone, health and safety measures have been implemented by Sheridan to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
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, health screening prior to access to campus, enforcement of physical distancing, and a mechanism to report and track health status.
It is now a requirement for all people coming onto campus to wear a mask or face covering at all times, except when eating or drinking (while appropriately physically distanced). Sheridan will provide every student and employee a re-usable mask. A mask should have at least 2-layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. The mask should cover your nose, mouth and chin. You can find information on how to create a mask here if you do not have one.
Students taking classes on campus will be provided with mandatory medical-grade masks to wear during in-person instruction.
For information regarding proper mask/face covering use and care, please see these guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
STAFF: For more information on masks and face coverings, please see the “COVID-19 Guidelines on Community Protective Garment (i.e. Face Mask)” document on Occupational Health and Safety’s Sheridan Central page.
Please note the following important health and safety information:
Sheridan is encouraging everyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or who has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 to contact us. By reporting your diagnosis and symptoms, you are supporting the health, safety and wellness of the Sheridan community. Your reporting can also help Sheridan with additional cleaning efforts and with Sheridan’s communication with the local public health units.
Students can disclose by contacting the by contacting the Health Centre at 905-845-9430 ext. 5153. Employees can disclose using the Incident Investigation Report.
Once you've submitted the form, a member of our staff will be in touch to determine whether or not there is a risk to the health of others. Our staff will inquire about the dates, times and specific locations you visited.
Your information will help us work with our public health authorities, initiate even deeper cleaning efforts in specific locations, and work with public health to advise students and employees of the times and locations that an ‘unnamed person’ who was symptomatic or diagnosed was on campus, so that others can decide for themselves if they should self-monitor and seek medical attention.
If a student or employee has informed you that they were symptomatic while on campus, or that they have received a confirmed diagnosis, please encourage the individual to contact the Health Centre at 905-845-9430 ext. 5153, employees may use the Incident Investigation Report. Please encourage the individual to report it to Sheridan so that we can support the health, safety, and wellness of the Sheridan community. Please see "How do I self-disclose" above on how the individual can report it to Sheridan.
Please note local public health will follow up with all individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 and any individual who had a high risk of exposure to COVID-19. You do not have to disclose others' medical information to Sheridan. However, if you see concerning behaviour that jeopardizes the health and wellness of our community, please report it to Sheridan Security.
Sheridan has always complied and will continue to comply with the Ontario Public Health’s guidelines on cleaning and disinfecting public settings for COVID-19. In keeping with established guidelines, Facilities Services will clean and disinfect frequently touched areas in common spaces at least twice daily and engage in enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of all Sheridan spaces once daily.
Sheridan will provide appropriate cleaning and disinfecting tools for use while on Sheridan property. In specific labs, studios, and workshops, Sheridan community members, who use the space, equipment, tools and materials, will engage in cleaning and disinfecting such items before and after use.
