do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19

The rising COVID-19 numbers in Ontario are concerning and remind us how critical it is that we continue to do our part to keep our community safe and curb the spread. We can change the trajectory of the numbers and keep each other safe by: 

  • Working online and staying away from campus unless you are required to be there. 
  • Maintaining physical distance at all times of at least two metres from others. 
  • Wearing a mask when you cannot maintain distance, and in all college buildings. Change out your masks and wash them daily. Wear them so they cover your nose, mouth and chin. 
  • Avoiding social gatherings, both indoors and outdoors, and limit interactions with anyone outside your household. 
  • Downloading the COVID Alert app. It lets users know if they’ve been exposed to the virus. 
  • Self-isolating for 14 days if you have had close contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19, or if you’ve returned from travel outside Canada. 

If there is a confirmed case at a George Brown College campus, we will notify you via email and post the information at georgebrown.ca/covid-19

Let’s do everything we can to stop the spread.
