With the provincial lifting of vaccine passports this week, St. Lawrence College (SLC) is confirming that its campuses will maintain their vaccination policy through to the end of the winter term which ends on April 29, 2022.  

The College requires everyone entering its campuses to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or have an approved exemption and proof of a recent negative rapid antigen test. Additionally, people entering SLC facilities must complete health screening questions, as well as follow other public health regulations that are in effect at the time. Decisions for future semesters are pending and will be communicated soon, according to Glenn Vollebregt, SLC President and CEO. 

“We received confirmation from our Ministry and Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health that Ontario Colleges are supported in taking this approach as part of our overall health and safety requirements,” Vollebregt said. “We know that approximately 98% of students, faculty, and staff attending campus at Colleges and Universities in Ontario have provided proof or attestation of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We appreciate everyone’s efforts in protecting public health and getting through to the other side of the pandemic.”
