How Sheridan is keeping you safe on campus
Ventilation upgrades: The airflow and ventilation in our spaces has been analyzed and evaluated, and filtration systems have been replaced pursuant to recommendations from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for COVID-19. We continue to undertake measures to reduce the risk of airborne contaminants.
Mandatory screening for campus access: Everyone coming to campus must complete a daily self-assessment on the Sheridan Alert! App before coming to campus.
COVID-19 Safety Training: All employees who are required on campus must complete mandatory training to ensure they are aware of the relevant health and safety protocols.
Vaccines: Health Canada has deemed COVID-19 vaccinations safe and effective and view them as the primary driver of our return to normal activities.
Sheridan requires everyone who comes to campus to demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated.
Contact Tracing : Sheridan relies on your onecard tap to provide you necessary COVID-19 instructions. Therefore, everyone entering campus must use designated entrances and tap their onecard.
Cleaning & disinfection: We clean and disinfect frequently touched areas in common spaces at least twice daily and disinfect all Sheridan spaces once daily. In specific labs, studios, and workshops, Sheridan community members are asked to clean equipment and materials before and after use. Many spaces are disinfected using a new electrostatic spraying system, covering more high-touch areas in a fraction of the time.
Capacity limits for shared spaces: Our study spaces, labs, and studios are available for safe in-person activity. Common spaces are available for students between classes, as are bookable spaces for individual and group study.
Navigation signage and physical distancing: Signs throughout the buildings are helping avoid congestion and indicate how to safely line-up and wait for classes, the cafeteria, and printers, etc.
Masks and PPE: Everyone on campus must wear a medical mask at all times, except when eating or drinking (while appropriately physically distanced). Sheridan will provide students and employees with a medical mask if they do not have one.
Managing positive cases and outbreaks: Sheridan has had minimal COVID-19 cases throughout the pandemic. In alignment with public health processes, Sheridan will provide specific information about your COVID-19 situation based on the information you share with us through the student self-reporting form or the employee self-reporting form. We continue to work with our local public health units to reduce the risk of transmission.
