Graduate Students - Update on Strengthened Enforcement of Stay-at-Home Order

As recently announced, the Province is permitting strengthened enforcement of the Stay-at-Home order, while imposing new travel restrictions and additional measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. These new measures came into effect on April 17 at 12:01 a.m. and are expected to remain in place until at least May 20.

The province has recently revised their position around the enforcement of these measures and has restricted the reasons that police may stop individuals outside of their homes.

Nevertheless, as a precaution and in recognition of the importance of minimizing in-person contacts during this critical period, designated required services staff and faculty will be contacted by their manager, Faculty or divisional office this week with a letter confirming their need to be on campus. This letter can be presented in the event that any of York’s staff should be asked to confirm why they need to come to York’s campuses.

At this time, we want to again remind all members of the York community not to come to campus unless you live on campus, or if it is absolutely necessary. Further updates will also be shared with York’s researchers concerning what these latest restrictions mean for access to on-campus facilities.
