COVID-19 Controls for Trent University Visitors and Contractors
Trent Forward safety guidelines have been designed to enable the return to campus in a way which minimizes the risk of an outbreak of COVID-19 at the University, and to protect the health & safety of the Trent community.
All contractors and visitors to Trent campuses must adhere to the safety protocols in place to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission while on Trent property, including the Mandatory Use of Face Coverings to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19.
Contractors must provide their own face coverings / non-medical masks, as would be expected of all PPE.
Volunteers (e.g. varsity team coaches) will be supplied with 1 complimentary face covering each.
Each day before coming to campus, please assess yourself for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors. An assessment tool is available from the Ontario Ministry of Health.
While working on campus, always maintain at least 2m /6ft physical distance from others. Greet people with a wave. Follow directional signage and floor markings.
Please remember to continue to practice physical distancing during breaks and in common spaces.
Wash your hands frequently. If you cannot wash your hands, use hand sanitizer after contacting high-touch surfaces such as: door handles, keyboards, railings, commonly used equipment, phones, faucets, controls, light switches, benches, and computer mice.
Facilities Management will be providing enhanced disinfection of high touch areas in the public spaces of buildings (corridors, stairwells, and entrance and exit areas, washrooms) as often as resources permit.
All persons who enter or remain in the indoor spaces of Trent University, or in outdoor spaces where physical distancing cannot be achieved, are required to wear a face covering that covers the nose, mouth, and chin. The face covering must be worn inside Trent University buildings at all times, with the following exceptions:
- when eating or drinking in a physically distanced setting;
- in a single person indoor space such as an office, study carrel or residence room;
- when a manager or instructor responsible for a multi-person indoor space, such as a lab, classroom or common area, determines that physical distancing can be maintained and/or, physical barriers are sufficient;
- if wearing a mask would constitute a safety hazard;
- when required to receive medical services.
Cloth masks should be routinely washed in a washing machine. No less than the end of each day that you wear it.
