Fall 2021 information for staff returning to campus
This page is a work in progress. Thanks for your patience as we continue to add and update the most relevant information for staff returning to campus.
Accessing Campus Information
Paid parking resumed September 1, 2021. All vehicles parked on campus must be registered for parking.
Allow extra time when coming to campus. Enter campus through the designated entrance:
- Kingston: main entrance and E18 (Country Club Drive)
- Brockville: main entrance
- Cornwall: main entrance
COVID-19 information signage continues to be located throughout the campus to remind the College community of the current public health measures, including health screening, hand hygiene, and wearing of non-medical masks or face coverings.
Use SLC Safe app for the required daily health screening questionnaire to access campus. You are required to confirm you are free from COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering campus.
Note: the health screening questions are being updated to align with current provincial requirements and only people who pass daily screening (can confirm they are not ill, nor have been exposed to COVID-19) are to access campus.
Masks or face coverings are required to be worn while on campus, including all common spaces, corridors, academic areas, meeting and conference rooms, operational support areas, group offices, open work areas, and other workspaces occupied by more than one person. Please bring your own mask or face covering to wear on campus. The policy includes details on approved masks and face coverings.
- Full details are outlined in the College’s Mandatory Mask Policy.
Individuals working in office spaces and other work areas where the public is not invited or permitted access, can remove their mask behind a closed door if the space is restricted to only one person at a time and has full walls (not a cubicle). If you wish to remove your mask in such a private, access-controlled work setting, feel free to print and display this sign for your door, which asks visitors to knock and allow you time to put on your mask before they enter.
- Download the "Please Knock" door poster to print and display.
COVID-19 PROTOCOLS AND POLICIES
The College’s vaccination policy demonstrates to our students, employees, and communities our commitment to providing a safe environment to learn and work in.
To support the continued health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, SLC will require employees coming to an SLC campus or facility to be fully vaccinated. This policy also applies to students, visitors, and contractors coming on campus.
COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
The vaccination policy came into effect September 7, 2021. Below are a few important details:
- First vaccine dose required by September 7. When SLC announced the vaccination policy on August 12, it stipulated first vaccine dose was required by September 7. How to book a COVID-19 vaccination.
- Second dose required by October 16. There is a grace period ending on October 15 for people to have received their second vaccine dose. This is in recognition of the time required between doses. Anyone not fully vaccinated (i.e. has received the full series of a vaccine authorized in Canada at least 14 days ago) will be required to have a negative COVID-19 test within the past three days before they can access campus.
SLC will require proof of vaccination to confirm individual vaccination status.
Use the SLC SAFE app to confirm your vaccination status. Note that anyone coming campus in person is required to be fully vaccinated (14 days past second dose of an approved vaccine), or if you are unvaccinated, you are required to have a negative rapid antigen test from within three days (72 hours) of coming to campus.
Beginning at noon on Friday, September 24, SLC employees can upload their proof of vaccination directly in the SLC SAFE app. Learn more about providing proof of vaccination.
Employees with a medical exemption to being vaccinated are to email firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process of documenting your exemption. Regardless of where you are at in the exemption process, and after it is fully completed, you will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to coming to campus. The frequency and process for reporting test results will be shared directly with people who have documented an exemption.
