McMaster community, Welcome Back to Mac
Whether you’ve been on campus throughout the pandemic, are returning to a familiar place, arriving in Hamilton for the first time, or joining us remotely, welcome back to McMaster!
All university community members or visitors who wish to access a McMaster campus or facility, including faculty, staff and students, are required to provide proof of vaccination. Learn more details about the vaccination mandate.
McMaster’s ventilation plan involves assessing and making any required updates to the ventilation systems in buildings on campus and maximizing fresh air and keeping air recirculation at a minimum in all buildings with mechanical ventilation systems. See here for updated information.
Current provincial guidelines outline different requirements for patrons of restaurants compared to those eating in a workplace with co-workers. As a university campus, McMaster has both settings across its locations, as well as food courts, catering venues and concession stands.
As a reminder, masks are required in all scenarios when eating and drinking is not occurring.
Anyone working, studying at or visiting a McMaster campus or facility is required to complete screening and training before coming to campus. See steps for students, faculty, staff and researchers outlined here.
Workplace checklists, guidelines and supervisor requirements are available on the HR website.
Masks or face coverings are mandatory on campus for all indoor spaces, and in outdoor settings when 2 metre/6 feet distance cannot be maintained. As of September 7th:
- Physical distancing requirements are no longer required for indoor instructional spaces. (e.g., classrooms, laboratories, libraries, in-person experiential learning etc.).
- Physical distancing continues to be required in all other indoor non-instructional spaces on campus, including offices, athletics, cafeterias, hallways, and other areas.
