COVID-19 Protocols

When a person arrives on campus, they must have a mask that covers their nose and mouth for entry into the college. This is for the protection of all members of our community as we move through common spaces, such as hallways and washrooms, once they are past the check-in points.

Hazard Risk Assessments have been completed for classroom or office areas to assess physical distancing protocols to mitigate COVID-19 transmission. In spaces where physical distancing cannot be achieved, the college will provide masks for occupants to wear.

Students have been advised to bring ample water and food for their time on campus. Should additional water be needed, there will be water available through Security staff at all entrance points. This is intended as a reserve supply for students, as required. 

*Mohawk College is asking that students and employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 or have had symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19 complete this online COVID-19 Self Disclosure Form so that we can help reduce the spread of the virus. Mohawk College will not mandate this request.
