- You must record all visits to campus using our Campus Check-In tool
- We have updated the screening tool with new guidance on how vaccine side effects may affect how you answer the screening questions
Your continued support to keep our campus safe is, as always, recognized and appreciated.
In an ongoing effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, all students, employees, and visitors must complete the Campus check-in once per campus visit. This tool helps us monitor building occupancy levels both within buildings and within departments. You must fill in the tool each day you plan to visit campus.
As of today, we have updated the screening questions with guidance on how vaccine side effects should inform how you answer these questions.
In the 48 hours following your immunization, you may experience headache, fatigue, or muscle ache/joint pain. This is normal. If your symptoms only began after immunization, and you feel well enough to work, you are still able to access campus buildings. The check-in tool will ask if you have new or worsening symptoms. If you do have new but mild symptoms as stated above (headache, fatigue, muscle ache), and they began shortly after your vaccine, you should not include them in your answers. The provincial self-assessment tool is also available if you need more detailed screening.
