Informed by experts at Peel Public Health, UTM continues to work diligently to limit the spread of positive cases on campus and to communicate COVID-related updates to our community quickly, accurately and openly.

For information about COVID-19 response across U of T, please visit UTogether and our COVID-19 dashboard which publishes new data every Monday and Thursday. 

To learn more, please see the September 29, 2021 announcement from the VP & Principal entitled "Care, Mental Wellness and COVID-19 Notifications".

Note: as of January 3, 2022, due to changes in eligibility for testing driven by increasing COVID-19 cases related to the Omicron variant, case counts in this report are likely an underestimate of the number of individuals with COVID-19.

For the above-identified cases, teams have completed the tracing and cleaning processes, undertaken as a standard part of our rigorous safety measures. Operations of services at UTM remain unchanged. Any people requiring medical follow-up have already been contacted directly.

U of T’s experts in Environmental Health & Safety will continue to assess the situation carefully, provide support and guidance, and ensure medical confidentiality. As always, please email our Occupational Health Nurse at if you test positive for COVID-19 or if a public health authority contacts you about a positive COVID case.

Please also continue to observe UTM’s safety policies and public health directives to:

  • Maintain a distance of at least two metres from other people in all administrative spaces and common areas.
  • Wear a well-constructed, well-fitting mask.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze; immediately throw your tissue in the garbage and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze into your sleeve or arm.
  • Monitor yourself for COVID-19 symptoms, using UCheck’s web portal to complete your health screening.
  • Consult the university’s COVID-19 resource page and review our Frequently Asked Questions for information on the latest safety practices.
  • Review COVID-19 updates shared by U of T’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety.
