Safety Measures General Directives

Please note: The information in this section is current as of July 7, 2021. It will be updated throughout the summer with new information as we approach Fall 2021.

The Safety Measures General Directives (SMGD) provides guidance on expectations for faculty, staff, students, contractors and visitors in preparing their plans to ensure a continued safe return to our campuses. The SMGD reflects the current health measures for the balance of the Summer Term; which will change over time as we approach the Fall Term. It may also be amended in response to emerging public health experience as the next phase of the pandemic continues. It is predicated on widespread adoption of COVID-19 vaccines as the primary control for infection and transmission prevention.

Returning to Campus

Faculties and Portfolios should plan the transition for their staff to return to campus with approval from senior leadership in the Faculty/Portfolio. Previous COVID-19 return to campus approvals are no longer required.
