Working on Campus Procedure

 

Coming to Work on Campus Procedure

effective November 13, 2020

 

In line with provincial regulation and public health guidance, the University of Toronto is requiring anyone coming to one of its three campuses to complete a COVID-19 health screening by conducting a self-assessment each day before they visit.

To comply with these new requirement, and to help keep our U of T community healthy and safe, we need the cooperation of each Biology faculty, staff and graduate students who are coming to work on campus.

Please use this link to complete the Working on Campus Confirmation each and every day you come to work on campus, before arriving on campus.

You can complete your COVID-19 health screening, either by using the UCheck self-assessment web application, or the paper based off-line self-assessment and log. Instructions on how to access these tools are provided on the Working on Campus Confirmation as well as on the UTogether 2020 web page.

This procedure does not have to be completed on the days you work from home and you do not come to campus in person.

If your COVID-19 health screening/self-assessment returns a green status, it is safe for you to proceed and come to work on campus.

If your COVID-19 health screening/self-assessment returns a red status, you must:

  1. Stay home and self-isolate
  2. Contact your direct supervisor to let them know that you are not coming to campus
  3. Contact the UofT EHS Nurse at ehs.occhealth@utoronto.ca or (416) 978-4476

The EHS Nurse will provide you with further details and advise you on the next steps based on your specific situation. The supervisor will inform and consult with the Department Chair and/or the Department Manager to the determine when you will be scheduled to return to work on campus. If you are not able to connect with your supervisor in due course to report your red status, you must inform the Department Chair (joel.levine@utoronto.ca) and/or the Department Manager (mihai.baetu@utoronto.ca).

 

While on campus, wear a face mask and practice social distancing and a good hand hygiene.

If you have any questions or concerns about this procedure, please contact Mihai Baetu, our Department Manager, via e-mail at mihai.baetu@utoronto.ca or by phone at (905) 828-5361

Be safe!
