Masks will continue to be available for free on campus, and we encourage our community to wear a mask indoors, especially in classrooms, libraries, crowded spaces or close workspaces. Masks are still required in some settings, such as hospitals. 

While our vaccination mandate continues to be paused, we encourage students, faculty and staff to keep up to date with their COVID vaccinations. MacCheck now offers the ability to upload proof of vaccination documentation for your full series of COVID-19 vaccines as well as any additional booster doses you have received.

  • New hires must continue to provide proof of vaccination or seek and obtain an approved human rights-based exemption.  
  • McMaster host hospital and health partners will continue to have their own COVID policies and protocols and these need to be followed by faculty, staff and learners who attend these locations.  
  • The university will be hosting vaccine clinics on campus in September.

Ventilation is an important component of our COVID health strategy. The high standards for air quality that were established last year continue to be maintained. 

If you are feeling unwell, stay home. While daily MacCheck is not required, community members must use the provincial self-assessment screening tool if you or someone you live with has symptoms or tests positive for COVID. Staff and faculty members must continue to report confirmed cases of COVID through Mosaic, as required by provincial workplace regulations.
