What type of screening for COVID should I complete prior to coming to campus?
If you have symptoms of illness or test positive for COVID-19, complete Ontario's Self-Assessment prior to coming onto Humber premises. Follow the measures for self-isolation, self-monitoring and/or masking.
What should I do if I start having symptoms or test positive for COVID?
Do I need to have a negative COVID test before I return to work?
Do I need to wear a mask at Humber?
Will Humber continue to provide masks?
Humber will continue to make available medical masks at front service desks. If they are a requirement of your job, your manager will provide you with masks. Please discuss this with your manager.
As a supervisor, do I need to notify other employees if someone on my team has COVID-19?
Such disclosures are confidential; be diligent about protecting personal health information. The employee who is positive can choose to share this information with those they may have been in close contact with. All individuals should continue to be vigilant and continue to self-monitor for symptoms using the Ontario self-assessment tool. If there is a possibility of onsite transmission, please notify Occupational Health and Safety at email@example.com.
I work part-time and do not have any sick leave benefits. If I get COVID and need to isolate, will I need to take a leave without pay?
For those without sick leave benefits, the college will pay up to 5 days of COVID sick pay during a period when an employee has to self-isolate due to public health requirements and they are unable to work from home (either due to being unwell or because their work duties cannot be done from home). This is consistent with the province's Infectious Disease Emergency Leave requirements. At Humber, the COVID sick pay will be in effect until April 30, 2023. If you need further information, please talk to your manager about this.
If I have health and safety concerns about working on campus or working remotely, who should I contact?
Please inform your manager of any health and safety concerns you have. Your safety is a top priority whether you are working on-campus or working from home. Your manager will respond to your concerns, and will consult with Occupational Health and Safety, if needed. In addition to talking to your manager about your concerns, you can also contact Occupational Health and Safety (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee if you have any concerns.
