This winter, McMaster will be welcoming students, faculty and staff back to campus incrementally, alignment with the latest government and public health measures. This guide is intended to provide key information and resources you will need to come on-site for work. 

Preparing to return to campus

Before coming to campus each day

  • Use MacCheck before coming to campus to complete your daily health screening. A green check mark means you are clear to attend a McMaster site that day.
  • Bring your ID Badge and your mask. General information on masking can be found here. 

While on campus

  • Keep at least 2 metres distance from others except in designated instructional areas such as classrooms, laboratories, libraries.
  • Wear your mask covering your nose, mouth and chin.
  • Sanitize your hands when entering a building and follow safety signs on campus.
  • Follow the guidelines for spaces and eating on campus.
  • Business meetings should be held virtually wherever possible between now and January 27. When in-person meetings resume, follow guidelines for meetings, including masking and physical distancing.
