COVID-19 Protocols

As directed by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, we have released Michener’s mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for all staff and students. The goal of this policy is to protect staff, students and the community from COVID-19 and to keep our students in school to the fullest extent possible. We recognize that vaccines provide the best protection against COVID-19, and by ensuring that staff and students are vaccinated, other community members will be protected by reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Michener is also following UHN’s policy for Essential Care Partners and Individuals Coming on Site for Business, which applies to those accompanying patients to the Chiropody Foot Clinic, vendors, contractors and anyone required to come on site to conduct business. The policy is posted here, and requires all visitors to 222 St. Patrick Street (with the sole exception of Chiropody clinic patients) to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 as of Oct. 22, 2021. Anyone with an approved exemption must submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test performed within the past 48 hours. Rapid antigen test kits are available at Reception.

Please find below links to the Vaccination Policy, Frequently Asked Questions about the Policy, a medical exemption form and a non-medical exemption form based on the Human Rights Code.

To work or study at Michener, students and employees must receive both doses of a Health Canada-approved COVID-19 vaccine by October 22nd, 2021.

Michener has implemented an at-home rapid antigen screening program for Fall 2021 to ensure everyone’s safety. The following individuals are required to participate in rapid screening:

  • Those who are not fully vaccinated (i.e., partially vaccinated but not yet 14 days past their second or final shot); and
  • Those with an approved vaccination exemption.
  • Those who have not submitted vaccination documentation.

Rapid Antigen Screen Kits are available at 222 St. Patrick. Please use this online booking system  to schedule a pick-up date and time.

For questions about the in-home rapid antigen screening program, email rapidtesting@michener.ca.

We hope that you and your families have continued to stay well and healthy during this world pandemic. We have all been impacted to some extent by restrictions and changes to our lives, and Michener continues to support you whether you are learning or working from your home or from our campus.

Recognizing that this is a stressful time for all, please continue to care for yourselves and each other while maintaining appropriate physical distancing, using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and washing your hands frequently.

Especially during this stressful time, our students, alumni, faculty and staff have continually proven our undeniable value to the Canadian healthcare system. Please take some time to read about our many accomplishments during the global pandemic.
