Statement from the Dean's Office
Progress continues at the Daniels Faculty and across the University of Toronto as we prepare for a safe return to campus this fall. For the most recent information, visit the UTogether hub and the Office of the Vice-Provost, Students’ website.
Since my last update on May 31, Ontario is now in step two of the provincial plan to reopen ahead of schedule and the Federal Government announced they are easing quarantine restrictions for fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents. (As restrictions ease, please reference the Vice-Provost's COVID-19 Resources for information related to quarantine accommodation for students.)
This news, combined with the province’s accelerated vaccination plans, is another step in the right direction for our transition to on-campus activities.
U of T also announced that vaccinations will be required for students living in residence. “This requirement, which is endorsed by our local public health authorities, will enable us to give our students the residence experience that they expect – and that is so important to their growth and development – without compromising on their health and safety,” said Sandy Welsh, U of T’s vice-provost, students.
I encourage you to consult Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination website for information on vaccine eligibility and how to book your first and/or second dose.
At the Daniels Faculty, we continue to monitor public health measures as we prioritize planning for activities that benefit the most from an in-person experience. We will provide another update in July as more information becomes available.
Until then, take good care.
