What to do if you have been in Close Contact?

If you have spent time with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19, and have been identified as a close contact (had a high risk exposure) do not come to campus.

STEP ONE:

Complete Ontario’s COVID-19 Assessment Tool, and follow its advice and any advice you receive from Public Health.

STEP TWO:

Follow any directives on self isolation or testing or advice you receive from Public Health. If you are fully vaccinated, this assessment will determine whether self-isolation is required.

STEP THREE:

If the assessment advises you to get tested for COVID-19 and your test returns positive, self isolate and follow any direction received from Public Health, and complete Ryerson’s Self-Declaration form.

STEP FOUR:

Contact your professors/instructors by email if you have questions about assignments, exams or make-up classes This includes uses of extensions, exam/quiz/test makeups, and lecture material notes.

What's Considered an Outbreak?

An outbreak would be declared when two or more laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases with an epidemiological link are identified in the workplace, institution or school (e.g., same class, same work area, same shift or activity, etc.) within a 14-day period where both cases could have reasonably acquired their infection in the same space. 

In addition to the response protocol listed above, where an outbreak is declared, X University will follow all public health directives and consult with Toronto Public Health to determine:

  1. Any additional possible exposure on campus.

  2. If restrictions or closures of impacted facilities and activities are needed.

  3. Communication of any directives with impacted community members, students, staff and faculty.

  4. If additional cleaning and disinfecting is required.

  5. How to ensure continuity of teaching, learning and research.

  6. How to ensure the continuity of safe housing.

  7. Considerations for modifying other support services on campus.
