Health and Safety Measures

The health and well-being of our community remains our top priority as we gradually reopen our campuses. Below is a brief overview of the enhanced safety measures and guidelines to protect all students and employees.

  • Declaration of vaccination status required by September 7.
  • Proof of full vaccination or exemption required by October18.
  • Masks or face coverings continue to be mandatory inside all Humber campus buildings. Please use this resource for how to wear a mask safely.
  • Required COVID-19 self-screening for anyone coming to campus using the Humber Guardian App.
  • Physical distancing continues to be required across campus and class sizes will be reduced to support physical distancing in each training space. Where physical distancing is not possible, additional health and safety protocols will be introduced. Although recent provincial government guidelines stated that physical distancing would not be required at colleges and universities, Humber will continue with this measure to help keep our community safe knowing the high transmission rate of the Delta variant.
  • Access to rapid testing for staff and students on campus.
  • Students living in residence, varsity athletes and those in select programs with specific work-integrated learning requirements must be fully vaccinated.
  • Offering student services virtually as well as in-person.
  • Required health and safety training and orientation for all employees.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization of equipment, tools and spaces.
  • Strategies to ensure appropriate ventilation on campus, such as increasing air change rates and maintaining proper humidification levels to limit the pathogens in the air.

Vaccinations are a critical public health measure in reducing the risk and spread of COVID-19. Humber strongly encourages staff and students to get vaccinated.
