Enhanced screening requirements on campus
Hamilton’s Medical Officer of Health recently added new increased level red restrictions which impact McMaster students, faculty and staff every time they come to campus to work, attend classes or use any campus facility.
Anyone coming to campus or a McMaster facility must complete the provincial COVID-19 screening tool one hour in advance of coming to campus and send confirmation of passing the screening to a supervisor, faculty member or instructor or key contact at the university.
Students living in residence entering any other building on campus should email the results of the provincial COVID-19 tool to Residence Life staff email@example.com
Read the full requirements if you need to come to campus.
Supervisors and faculty who receive these confirmation communications, are asked to keep them on file for two weeks. No other action is required to be taken.

COVID-19 Reporting Tool in Mosaic
McMaster asks all students, faculty and staff to go onto Mosaic to report positive COVID-19 test results or close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.
This tool will help the university track confirmed and probable cases on campus and ensure appropriate cleaning and safety protocols are put into place promptly.
The results from this optional reporting are sent directly to McMaster’s Rapid Response team to ensure appropriate measures are taken where required.
