Mandatory Guidelines for Students and Staff

Following the Ministry of Colleges and Universities’ plan, Centennial College began a gradual, phased approach to reopening on July 6, 2020. The first to re-enter were students who needed to fulfill program requirements for the Winter 2020 semester, and the faculty/staff essential to teach and facilitate these labs.

The Centennial College Campus Re-Entry Guidelines and Protocols contain and detail the College's re-entry plan, including the College response to COVID-19, and best practices for ensuring the health, welfare and safety of the College community. The College has attempted to ensure that such Guidelines and Protocols are in compliance with current and available legislative Acts and Regulations, and public health directives and the College will, on an ongoing basis, strive to ensure that the said Guidelines and Protocols continue to reflect the most current relevant information. The reader is advised however, to refer to and monitor any and all public health guidelines and directives as may be issued from time to time by Toronto Public Health, Public Health Ontario and/or any other governmental agencies.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and patience as we roll out our COVID-19 plans.
