Verification of Illness Submission

Submission of a Verification of Illness Form (VIF)

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you should contact Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000) or your local health unit.

  • If you are self-isolating due to symptoms of COVID-19 or the flu, then please complete the self-declaration form in Quest
  • If your illness is because of other reasons then you must submit your Verification of Illness Form (VIF) electronically through the Submission Form (effectively March 12, 2020). Please have an electronic copy of your VIF ready to upload (take a picture or scan the VIF making sure all sections are readable). There is no need to physically take the form to the Math Undergraduate Office (MUO) anymore. If you have questions, contact the MUO.
