Reliable sources of information on the COVID-19 pandemic:

Reporting symptoms or a diagnosis to Sheridan

While no one is obligated to share a medical diagnosis with Sheridan, we are now asking for voluntary disclosures from employees and students who either have received a confirmed diagnosis or who had symptoms consistent with COVID-19 while they were on campus or in the physical proximity of other members of the Sheridan community. This procedure is similar to what has been implemented at universities and colleges across the country.

Sheridan is taking this step in an abundance of caution. While most of us have not been on campus since March 13, and while our physical campus spaces are now closed, our Davis Health Centre was open up until March 27 and some essential staff positions remain on site. Note: No one with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should be on campus — not even employees whose roles have been deemed essential.

How do I self-disclose?

Disclosures can be made through this online COVID-19 Self-Disclosure Form, which requires a Sheridan username and password.

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.

What will Sheridan do with the information I disclose?

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 someone told me they were symptomatic while on campus, do I have to report it?

If a student or employee has informed you that they were symptomatic while on campus, or that they have received a confirmed diagnosis, you do not have a duty to report their diagnosis to others. That duty rests with public health. Please encourage the individual to self-report so that we can help facilitate that process. Please do not share anyone’s medical diagnosis with others.
