COVID-19 illness reporting reminder

As we head into the winter season and prepare to see more people on campus for the winter semester, please be reminded of the Durham College’s (DC) COVID-19 symptom and illness reporting protocol.

While DC’s incidents of COVID-19 have been very low throughout the fall semester, the province is seeing a rise of COVID-19 case counts and expect this may continue as the winter weather approaches.

To continue to prioritize the health and safety of our campus community, in addition to reporting absences to your supervisor (employees) and school office (students), our Health and Safety team should be made aware of reported absences that are related to COVID-19 symptoms and illnesses.

For your reference, the decision-making/COVID-19 illness reporting process can be found on the DC homepage, the COVID website and on ICE for employees.

Your cooperation is appreciated. Wishing you a safe and healthy winter season.
