On August 17, 2021, the Chief Medical Officer of Health indicated that mandatory vaccination policies

will be required for post-secondary institutions, with specific minimum requirements. As post-secondary

institutions continue to develop these policies and to ensure a safer return to campus this September,

the Council of Medical Officers of Health strongly recommends that:

• Full vaccination against COVID-19 be required for all individuals involved in any in-person activities on

campus (students, staff, faculty, contractors, and visitors), with the rare exception of those individuals

who cannot be vaccinated due to permitted exemptions (medical and other protected grounds under

the Ontario Human Rights Code). Individuals are to be required to submit proof of vaccination.

• All individuals who are unvaccinated due to permitted exemptions or who are awaiting their second

dose will be required to adhere to additional health and safety measures, up to and including serial and

frequent rapid testing.

• Individuals involved in any in-person activities on campus (students, staff, faculty, contractors, and

visitors) should be fully vaccinated as soon as operationally feasible.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is the single most effective public heath measure to reduce the spread of

COVID-19. Its inclusion among the other public health measures (including physical distancing, capacity

limits, and indoor mask use) is essential in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid testing

protocols are not preventive and are not a replacement for immunization and should be used only in

instances where vaccination is not possible.

High vaccine uptake in Ontario, including amongst post-secondary communities, will be essential to

ensure a safe and healthy autumn. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the wellbeing of

students, staff, and faculty, and your support of the pandemic response in Ontario.
