What to expect on campus

We are excited to welcome students and employees to George Brown campuses this fall, and we have introduced enhanced measures to help you stay healthy. Our video outlines what you need to know about coming to campus and make sure to check out the step-by-step process below.

The steps students must take before coming to campus

Daily Mandatory COVID-19 Health Screening

Students coming to campus must complete COVID-19 health screening before entering a college building.

  • Students must complete online screening each day they come to campus.
  • When you arrive on campus security will confirm your screening results and grant you access.
  • If you receive a fail result, or if you are experiencing symptoms, and/or if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, you must stay home and you should notify your instructor and Student Counselling and Well-being at georgebrown.ca/letstalkcovid19.

Access screening form

Verified COVID-19 Vaccination OR Negative Test

As of September 7, 2021, if you are coming to campus you will be required to do one of the following:

  1. Provide verification of full vaccination (employees and students only, details below); or
  2. Provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 rapid test administered within 72 hours of entry, or have such a test performed on site, and receive a negative result. Book your campus rapid test in advance.

Providing proof of vaccination

We are working on a process to have documents uploaded electronically and will provide more information once that system is up and running.

In the meantime, beginning September 7, 2021, when you come to campus, please bring with you (either printed or electronic) proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations. Documents must include your name, the date of vaccination and the type of vaccine you received.

Valid proof of vaccination includes:

  • Receipt from issuing vaccination clinic or pharmacy
  • An electronic vaccine receipt issued by the government of Ontario or another province
  • A record of each dose of your vaccination, such a receipt, card or confirmation from an international organization in English, or with a certified English translation.

Vaccination and Rapid Test Verifiers, who are registered nurses and health care administrators, will be at every college entrance to verify all documents. If the validity of a document is in question, you may be asked to complete a rapid test on-site.

For more information, see our Vaccination Policy and FAQs.

Upon Arrival at Campus

In order to gain access to campus:

  • Complete the one-time COVID-19 awareness training.
  • Complete the health screening each day, before arriving on campus.
  • Ensure you have appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment). Masks are mandatory on campus. Eye protection (e.g.: face shields or safety goggles) is also required in closed spaces such as labs, clinics, shops, classrooms and offices, or when working in close contact with another person in an open space. A reusable face shield will be provided at campus entrances. Visit the PPE Required on Campus page for more information.
  • Students and employees can swipe their George Brown ID at the entrance.
  • Students can also use their digital ID. Your ID with a barcode is available in the George Brown College app. Scan it at the entrance.
