Victoria University has shifted its focus from crisis response to planning for a gradual return to campus, and encourages staff, faculty, and their families to reach out for help if they need additional support during this transition. The well-being of the Vic community remains a top priority as we gradually move towards re-opening. Human Resources has compiled a list of employee support that is available to you.

COVID-19 Screening Tool

The Ontario government has announced that employees, contractors, and visitors are required to complete a COVID-19 screening before they enter the workplace.

For every day that you work on campus, you are required to fill out this COVID-19 Screening Tool and return it to your manager before you arrive at work.

The completion of this screening tool is mandatory as a condition of entry into Victoria University. The data collected will be stored securely and will only be shared as necessary for the strict purpose of support for contact tracing should there be a risk to the University and its community members due to a positive case of COVID-19.
