Cases on Campus
Sheridan is taking numerous steps to re-open our campuses gradually and protect people’s health and safety. This page outlines active cases of COVID-19 connected to Sheridan’s campuses and the institution’s protocols for response and notification.
Reported cases on campus
Any positive case that is connected to campus and reported to Sheridan will be listed below on a weekly basis. A blank area indicates that cases that were previously listed have been resolved.
These cases represent circumstances whereby an individual with a positive COVID-19 test or COVID-19 symptoms notified Sheridan and the individual has either worked, attended class, or otherwise spent a significant amount of time on campus while they are infectious to others.

Onset of illness
Please note the following important health and safety information:
- If you feel unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, please do NOT come to campus or if you become unwell while on campus, leave immediately. You are encouraged to:
- Self-Isolate immediately. Self-isolation means staying home and limiting contact with others as much as possible.
- If you have been on campus in the past 48 hours before feeling unwell, you must complete the Student Self-Report Form and follow the instructions provided.
- Utilize the self-assessment tool developed by the Government of Ontario
- Contact your health care practitioner if you are concerned
- Notify any close contacts. A close contact means you were in close proximity (less than 2 meters) for at least 15 minutes or for multiple short periods of time without masking or the use of personal protective equipment. (e.g., eating or studying together without a mask on).
- Please see Reporting symptoms or diagnosis to Sheridan for more information.
Returning to campus after a diagnosis
The return to campus procedure applies to all Sheridan community members including third-party vendors and suppliers.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, test positive for COVID-19 you must self-isolate even if you are fully vaccinated:
- If you are fully vaccinated and otherwise healthy: You and anyone you live with must self-isolate for 5 days. You can end isolation after five days only if your symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours (or 48 hours if you have gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea).
- If you are not fully vaccinated or are immunocompromised: You and anyone you live with must self-isolate 10 days. You can end isolation after 10 days only if your symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours (or 48 hours if you have gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea).
You are also encouraged to let Sheridan know about your diagnosis by completing the Student Self-Report Form so we may take the necessary precautions to protect our community.
A diagnosis of COVID-19 is considered private medical information and is therefore considered confidential. The identity of anyone with COVID-19 will remain confidential. Under no circumstances will the College release identifying information of an individual who has contracted COVID-19 to the media or to our community members.
Cleaning & Disinfecting Protocols
