To assist with this transition, we wanted to remind York students about the below steps to stay safe.
- Masks are strongly recommended in indoor settings where social distancing is difficult to maintain. N-95 and surgical masks are available for purchase at a discount on campus at locations, such as York Lanes, the Life Sciences Building, Central Square and Glendon’s Centre of Excellence. They will be available for free at various locations, as required. More information can be found on the Masks webpage.
- Get vaccinated for COVID-19, including boosters when eligible, and for the flu, when available. York continues to host vaccine clinics at our campuses, including Monkeypox vaccines (for those eligible) or offering vaccines for other diseases that may have been missed due to the pandemic. COVID-19 vaccines are free for all students, including international students. More details can be found on the COVID-19 Information for Students webpage. You are also highly encouraged to keep your COVID-19 vaccination information updated on YU Screen.
- If you are feeling unwell, don’t come to campus, test for COVID-19 and use the YU Screen self-assessment. Through YU Screen, you will receive guidance on next steps and you can continue to screen on a daily basis if you are unsure of whether you should return to campus. Consider picking up a rapid test from our Keele and Glendon campuses ahead of time.
York will continue to monitor the changing COVID-19 landscape on an ongoing basis. If circumstances should change during the academic year, new measures may be required.
