Throughout the pandemic, the U of T community has worked diligently to maintain a safe and supportive environment. Thanks to these efforts, we have successfully returned to on-site learning and work in the Winter academic term.
We are writing to provide an update on changing health restrictions on our campuses that will take effect for the upcoming Summer term, beginning May 1, 2022. These changes are being made in response to the Ontario government’s Roadmap to Reopen and public health guidance in Toronto and Mississauga.
As has been the case over the course of the pandemic, the University’s approach has been informed by changing regulations, legislation, and direction from public health authorities.
U of T will be pausing the following measures effective May 1, 2022:
- The requirement to complete health screening via UCheck prior to attending University premises
- The requirement to be fully vaccinated for in-person activities on University premises
- The requirement to be masked in indoor University spaces, unless otherwise required
Some or all of these requirements may be reinstated on short notice should public health conditions or guidance change. In order to minimize disruption, we ask that all members of our community continue to provide up-to-date information on their vaccine status via UCheck.
While physical distancing and masking will no longer be required, we ask everyone to respect the decisions of others regarding these measures, according to their comfort levels and health needs. It is vitally important that, even with the easing of provincial measures, we remain vigilant, conscientious, and respectful of one another.
We encourage everyone to visit their campus or division’s website as we near the Summer term for up-to-date information about courses, programs and employment requirements.
