What we can do for our community, exam protocol
Hello, Aanii, Bonjour,
Recently, both Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and Public Health Sudbury & Districts’ Medical Officer of Health, issued strong recommendations to reinforce and support masking in all indoor public settings. The early arrival of the flu, a resurgence in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and the continued spread of COVID-19 has made for a difficult respiratory illness season.
The University population is largely a healthy one, but wearing a mask is a selfless act — it protects others. As we look ahead to the holiday season, many of us will gather with our colleagues, friends and family, opening up potential transmission to our most vulnerable.
We don’t need a mandate to do the right thing and I strongly encourage our community members to increase protective health measures such as masking, COVID-19 boosters, flu vaccines, and staying away from others if unwell in the wake of worsening health trends.
Our Face Coverings Policy continues and applies to all on-campus examinations. If you’re writing an exam on campus, you’ll be required to wear a mask throughout.
