Update on new public health guidelines regarding out of province travel
As part of Ontario’s province-wide lockdown that will come into effect on December 26, 2020, the province has posted new public health guidelines that advise individuals who will be travelling out of Ontario to self-isolate for 14-days upon their re-entry to the province.
As part of the COVID-19 safety measures that Ryerson has put in place to protect our community, the university asks all students, staff, and faculty who are attending campus for in-person activities to adhere to governmental and public health directives and best practices. This now includes the requirement to self-isolate for 14 days subsequent to any interprovincial travel.
Although the vast majority of the university’s operations and activities are being offered virtually, this requirement may have implications for a limited number of students, staff, and teaching faculty who will be participating in in-person activities when the winter term begins on January 7, 2021.
Individuals who will be travelling outside of Ontario during the holiday break must not attend in-person activities on-campus until their 14-day period of self-isolation is complete. In addition, all individuals must complete the required self-screening tool, external link prior to coming on campus.
Any students travelling out of Ontario, who are participating in in-person placement or other experiential learning activities off-campus, are advised to check with their placement/learning site regarding any directions.

The university extends its best wishes for a safe and restful break to all members of the Ryerson community.
