A Phased Approach

Our four-phase plan for re-entry (see below) is consistent with federal, provincial and local public health guidelines and recommendations, with each phase defining a set of work criteria, and rules and regulations. Students and employees will return to campus in a coordinated process aligned to the phases, ensuring appropriate physical distancing and the sufficient availability of personal protective equipment, among other factors. Any changes in the prevailing phase will be announced by Centennial leadership in a timely manner.

The College will continue to monitor and control the number of people on campus for some time to meet public health guidelines, which includes physical distancing. Centennial leadership will closely assess the potential spread of the virus as on-site operations expand through the phases, and the College will engage the appropriate policies and procedures to mitigate any identified risks. This may include implementing firmer restrictions that reduce on-site staffing and learning.

Phase Approach
Phase 1 Full emergency measures are in place for protecting the health and wellbeing of people. College remains closed to all non-essential services/personnel, but can re-open with restrictions. Online learning continues, while some operations may resume on campus (i.e. labs for recovery).
Phase 2 Ability to open additional classrooms and labs. Access to public spaces remains restricted or closed. Initially, no in-person service operations (food, Bookstore, libraries, advising.)
Phase 3 College can re-open with restrictions. Classrooms, labs, public spaces and ancillary and student service operations may begin opening more fully.
Phase 4 College can fully restore business operations and COVID-19 is no longer deemed a health concern.

Heat maps have been developed for each of our campuses to illustrate lab scheduling, student facing service points, ancillary spaces and campus entry check-in points. The plans are colour-coded to indicate type of area, along with scheduled usage period and any access restrictions in accordance with Centennial’s phased re-entry plans. These documents will be consistently updated. You can access the latest versions here.
