Updated January 6, 2022
With the rapid rise of the Omicron variant of Covid-19, the Province of Ontario has returned to Step Two effective Wednesday, January 5, 2022. This situation, as well as travel and testing guidelines, continues to evolve almost daily.
At this time, Michener continues to discourage unnecessary travel outside of Canada. Due to the shortage of rapid antigen tests and PCR tests, we ask anyone who has travelled outside of Canada to isolate for 14 days and work remotely.
Michener’s policy continues to require anyone coming onsite at 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. At this time, full vaccination consists of two doses of a Health Canada-approved vaccine, however we continue to encourage all staff and students to receive a booster shot.
Any staff illness should be reported to your immediate supervisor and UHN Health Services . Any student illness should be reported to your Academic Chair and Michener Health Services (email@example.com). Clinical students should also inform their clinical coordinator.
