Illness and assessment

What to do if you think you have COVID-19

You must not attend campus if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or you are required to isolate.

To help you decide if you should isolate, you can use the  provincial self-assessment tool. Signage and daily emails remind individuals to complete screening before coming to our campuses.

Follow the applicable COVID-19 recommendations for students and employees.  


The Ontario Government has updated its COVID-19 testing and isolation guidelines. PCR testing is only available for high-risk individuals who are symptomatic or who are at risk of severe illness from COVID-19. This includes people with serious medical conditions as well as workers in healthcare, long-term care homes and other congregate settings (excluding post-secondary housing residences).

Before seeking out a COVID-19 test, please read the full list of individuals eligible for a PCR test per Ontario Government guidance
