The health and safety of our community remains our top priority. Vaccines have proven to be one of the most effective ways to minimize the dangers of COVID-19. To continue to protect the health of our community and stop the spread of infections, vaccinations will be a condition of participating in activities on campus.
All required individuals must be fully vaccinated to access CMU College, excepting only those special cases who have been granted an exemption.
Proof of full vaccination approved by the Ontario Ministry of Health is required for all staff, faculty, and students. Those who had their last dose administered more than 6 months ago, and qualify for a booster, are required to get a booster shot within 3 months of qualifying.
CMU follows the Ontario Ministry of Health’s definition of being fully vaccinated, defined as: Having received the full series of a COVID-19 vaccine or combination of COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Government of Canada, an individual is deemed to be fully vaccinated 14 days after having received the final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccination. Students may also be provided with more specific health, safety and sanitization requirements, related to their courses, by their instructors.
We expect all Staff, Faculty, Students, and Visitors to abide by CMU’s health and safety guidelines and protocols associated with COVID-19, as well as the Government’s COVID-19 guidance and laws. All members of the CMU community are also subject to municipal, regional, or provincial public health regulations including the mandatory immediate communication to the college in cases of COVID-19, followed by self-isolation for those who are confirmed or probable cases of COVID-19.
This policy will apply until further notice; the College will reassess the policy from time to time based on the evolving external environment.
