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

  • Bring your mask. General information on masking can be found here. 
  • 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.

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. 

Need to self-isolate?

  • Report to the university through Mosaic if you test positive for COVID-19 on a rapid test or a PCR test and have attended a McMaster location in the past 14 days.
  • Follow the province’s current isolation guidelines.
