COVID-19 Information | St. Clair College

Winter 2022 COVID-19 Communication

In response to the recent announcement by the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, St. Clair College will continue with the mask mandate, as per the current policy, until the end of the Winter 2022 Semester. The expected mask mandate end date is May 1, 2022. The safety of all students and staff is our top priority and this mandate is one step to help to ensure successful completion of the semester.
 
Additionally, effective March 21, 2022, St. Clair College will move from active to passive screening. This means that the daily questionnaire will not need to be formally completed through the SIS system. The College believes that everyone understands the symptoms of COVID-19 and the requirement to stay home if ill. The close contact/household contact self-isolation requirements have been updated by the province (see COVID Case Management Guidance). A Provincial Testing and Isolation Information Line is available at 1-888-777-0703 (toll-free), every day from 8 am to 6 pm to answer questions on the latest guidance.
 
We thank all staff and students for their resilience, patience and compliance with the pandemic safety requirements throughout this pandemic and ask for a little more patience as we close out this semester.
