Please be reminded that wearing a face mask while on campus is required of all students and employees to protect those around us.
As DC continues to keep you safe through the enforcement of strict COVID-19 protocols, it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure the health and well-being of our classmates and colleagues through the mandatory use of masks while on campus, as well as following the preventative safety measures.
Face masks requirements
- All students, employees and visitors are required to come to campus wearing a mask.
- Masks should fit securely, cover the nose and mouth, be made of at least two layers of tightly woven fabric such as cotton or linen and not have exhalation valves.
- If replacing current two-layer masks, it is advised that three-layer masks with woven cloth inside and outside and a non-woven, fibrous layer in between be considered.
- A face shield is not an acceptable replacement for a mask or facial covering.
- Masks and coverings may only be removed in designated eating areas while eating and must be put back on once eating is complete.
- Eating is not permitted outside of designated spaces, such as lounges and hallways.
- Single use face coverings/masks should be disposed of into a garbage bin.
- Reusable face masks should be properly stored and washed regularly.
- Students and employees who cannot wear a face mask or covering must complete a risk assessment by emailing email@example.com. Those who cannot wear a mask and come to class without completing a risk assessment will be asked to leave.
The health and safety of our students and employees is of utmost importance. These stringent COVID-19 requirements have been developed with guidance from public health authorities and are to be followed by all community members when on our campuses. DC has seen zero cases of on-campus COVID-19 transmission at both our Oshawa and Whitby campuses as a result of everyone doing their part in adhering to the COVID-19 health and safety protocols that have been put in place.
We thank you for your continued cooperation.
