Information & Updates
COVID-19

We are planning to begin our fall semester with a hybrid model of delivery — meaning a combination of faculty-led remote teaching and learning for those components of our programs that can be delivered remotely, and in-person delivery of the hands-on learning experiences that must take place on campus.  On-campus instruction will take place as restrictions are lifted, and in a manner that reflects our commitment to the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.

We have included a section for Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), as well as sections with more specific questions regarding the Campus, Student Services and Support, Academic Matters, Residence, International Students, and Messages from Our Leadership.

For immigration related questions, or questions regarding May and September intake for International Students please contact internationaladvising@cambriancollege.ca and see the International Students FAQ below for more information.

Mandatory COVID Training

If you have any labs or classes on campus, you are required to complete a mandatory COVID training module in Moodle before coming to campus. The module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Once you complete the module, you will receive a certificate of completion. You will need to print or download a digital copy of this certificate to share with Security before being permitted to access campus.

Health and Safety Guidelines and Protocols

Your health and safety on campus is our top priority, and we have put into place a number of recommendations and measures for your safe return to campus, including:

  • Avoid campus if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who does.
  • Sign in with Security via one of only four (4) entrances to the campus.
  • Present photo ID to Security along with your COVID-19 training certificate of completion.
  • Sanitize your hands before entering campus and upon leaving.
  • Respect physical distancing (2 metres) and wear a face covering when inside the College. If needed, Cambrian will provide a mask upon request.
  • Wear required PPE in your labs and wash your hands frequently. You are also required to wear a face covering in any common spaces like hallways, stairwells, and washrooms.
  • Do not share your textbooks or other learning resources.
  • Clean your workstation and learning tools after each use.
  • Leave campus immediately after your lab is finished.
  • Student supports and services will be available virtually, though some may be offered in-person as required.

  • You MUST complete the mandatory COVID-19 training module. You can find it at www.moodle.cambriancollege.ca or select the link to the Moodle course below and self-enrol for the training.

COVID-19 Student Training

or

COVID-19 Staff Training

  • The module takes 20 minutes to complete. Once you finish it successfully, you will receive a certificate of completion. You must produce proof of this certificate to gain access to campus, so either print it or keep an electronic company that you can show to Security when you sign in. You must produce proof of this certificate each time you sign in on campus.
  • You MUST wear a face covering when you come to campus. If you don’t have one, the college can provide you with one reusable mask which you can bring with you each time you come to campus.
  • Assess whether you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You can find a list of symptoms on this page under the section “General information about COVID-19”.
  • If you have two or more of the symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact within the past 14 days with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, please do not come  to campus and contact Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000 or a COVID-19 assessment centre.
Fall Semester — New Students

Get ready! We encourage you to accept your offer. We are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation and make whatever adjustments are necessary to programs and the status of our campus. We will communicate these to you as quickly as possible, through your myCambrian student account and the email you provide.

We encourage you to accept your offer as soon as possible because there’s no guarantee your spot will be saved for you.  Any changes to our plans will be communicated to you as soon as possible through your myCambrian student account and the email you provide.

We are planning to begin our fall semester with a hybrid model of delivery — meaning a combination of faculty-led remote teaching and learning for those components of our programs that can be delivered remotely, and in-person delivery of the hands-on learning experiences that must take place on campus.  On-campus instruction will increase as restrictions are lifted. If you decide that online learning is not the option you want, you will receive a refund. Refund applications will be processed through our Enrolment Centre.

We have taken a number of step to ensure a safe return to campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Those measures are outlined in our Campus Re-open Guide and Re-open Plan, at the top of the page. We are following all best practices to reduce the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19. They include controlled access to the campus, pre-screening for COVID symptoms prior to being allowed access to campus, mandatory wearing of a face covering while on campus, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of the entire campus, in particular high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces, and reconfiguring lab and classrooms and closing common spaces to promote physical distancing.

For more on the mandatory wearing of face coverings, see the section Campus and On-campus Services, question 2: “What is your policy about the wearing of masks on campus?”

Should you choose to enrol for September and start your studies online, you will be contacted by your faculty members, who will provide you with all the information you need to begin your studies. Your online learning will include live, interactive online classes (recorded so you can view them later on, if necessary) and assignments you can complete on your own.

All our student services and supports will continue to be offered online, including the Library, Learning Centre, Glenn Crombie Centre for Wellness and Accessibility, Career Centre, and more. Details are here on our COVID landing page.

You do not have to be on campus to study online. You can study from your home community.

For the 2020 fall semester, we expect the campus will be open for in-person delivery of hands-on components of courses that can only be completed on site. Theory portions of your courses will continue to be offered through faculty-led remote learning.
In order to come onto campus for required hands-on learning, students, faculty, and employees will have to complete a mandatory training module. The module takes about 20 minutes. When you successfully finish the module, you will receive a certificate of completion, which you must present in order to come onto campus.
Here are the links for the module, which is found in Moodle. Use your Cambrian ID number and password to log-in.
Student link
Staff link

Our Enrolment Centre has that information for you, and it will be available soon on your myCambrian student portal. At this point, we would encourage you to pay your fees and deposits to ensure your spot in your program this September. We will communicate with you any changes as they occur.

We expect our Residence to be open for September, so if you are planning to stay on Residence, it would be wise to apply and secure your spot.

For more information regarding Residence, you can email our Residence management  info@cambrianresidence.ca.

Our Campus Re-open Guide has a section on Residence and what we are doing to ensure your safety.

There will be enhanced cleaning of common, high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces. We will provide our students in Residence with education on infection control best practices.

We fully intend to have our Residence open to students in September. If that changes, we will let you know as soon as possible, and work directly with students who intend to stay on Residence.

You can learn more about OSAP and what it means for you at www.osap.gov.on.ca
The Government of Canada also has supports in place for post-secondary students. Click here to learn more.

  • You are permitted to travel to Canada for classes beginning in the 2020 fall semester (September) if:
    *you have a valid study permit that was issued before March 18, 2020, and
    *your program requires hands-on learning (labs) that can only be completed on campus
    Click here to see if your program has hands-on learning labs in the fall semester that can only be completed on campus.
  • If your study permit was issued before March 18, 2020, but your program does not require hands-on learning on campus for 2020 fall semester, we are requesting that you remain in your home country to begin your studies
  • If your study permit was issued to you after March 18, 2020, you are not yet permitted to travel to Canada. Your studies will begin in your home country
  • If you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, you will not be allowed to travel to Canada. Click here to learn more about COVID-19, including symptoms and how to stay safe
  • If you do not have symptoms, upon arrival in Canada, you must still self-isolate for a period of 14 days, and you must have a self-isolation plan. That plan should include where you are going to be staying and how you are getting there, whether by yourself or if someone is picking you up. You should not come to Canada unless you have a self-isolation plan
  • If you have not arranged a destination where you will be staying for your 14-day self-isolation period, Cambrian can provide you with a room at a designated hotel. Please let Cambrian’s International Department know what your plans are (international@cambriancollege.ca)
  • If you intend to come to Sudbury for your self-isolation period, Cambrian can provide you with a room at a designated hotel in Sudbury. Please let Cambrian College International know what your plans are (international@cambriancollege.ca)
  • If you have already been in Canada for more than 14 days and have completed your mandatory self-isolation with no symptoms, you do not need to undergo a further 14-day self-isolation period to begin your studies at Cambrian College.
  • If however, you have developed symptoms of COVID-19 during or after your initial 14-day isolation period, or been in contact with someone who has, you will then have to undergo another 14-day isolation period from the onset of symptoms or potential contact

To learn more about COVID-19 as it relates to international students, visit the website of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, a ministry of the Government of Canada.

According to the website for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada:

“If your in-class courses are being moved to an online-only format because of COVID-19, you’re still eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP).
If you have a study permit, or been approved for a study permit for a program starting in the spring, summer or fall, but you can’t travel to Canada at this time due to travel restrictions, you’re also still eligible for the PGWPP.
If you’re in this situation, you may

  • begin your classes while outside Canada, and
  • complete up to 50% of your program while outside Canada, if you can’t travel to Canada sooner.

If you start your studies in fall 2020, you won’t have time deducted from the length of your post-graduation work permit for studies you complete while outside Canada between fall 2020 and December 31, 2020.”

If you have questions, please feel free to visit the IRCC website. You can also contact Cambrian’s International Department at international@cambriancollege.ca.

Fall Semester — Current Students

We are planning to begin our fall semester with a hybrid model of delivery — meaning a combination of faculty-led remote teaching and learning for those components of our programs that can be delivered remotely, and in-person delivery of the hands-on learning experiences that must take place on campus.  On-campus instruction will increase as restrictions are lifted.

Student placements in community are resuming as our partners indicate that they are able to accept and support placement and co-op students. If you are an Employer interested in supporting a student on placement or co-op, please contact the Cambrian Career Centre for further information.

Apprenticeship delivery is suspended until further notice. We will provide updates as they become available.

If our campus is open as usual, we will follow our normal program schedules and requirements regarding evaluations and final exams. If our campus remains closed, we will put in place whatever contingency plans are necessary, and we will share those with you through your myCambrian student account email.

We fully intend to have returning students finish their programs on time and graduate. If there is any change to that plan, we will let you know right away.

Keep checking back here on the COVID-19 landing page. We are updating it constantly. You can also email us your questions covid@cambriancollege.ca.

Campus and On-Campus Services

You will be required to wear a face covering while on campus.  

A face covering includes a medical mask or non-medical mask or other covering including a bandana, scarf or cloth (including hijab and niqab) that covers the mouth and nose to ensure a barrier to limit community transmission.  Other forms of face coverings, like face shields or specific medical masks, etc. may be required for specific activities on-campus, for which supervisors and faculty will advise of and provide accordingly if required.  

While individuals are encouraged to provide their own face covering, Cambrian will provide you with either one re-usable mask, or a temporary one, at one of our two designated entrances.  

Instructional Spaces / Settings:

All students, faculty and staff engaged in in-person instruction inside the building will be required to wear a face covering in any and all instructional spaces.  If the wearing of a face covering (non-medical mask), impedes the effectiveness of the in-person instruction (i.e. vocal music), then an alternative may be used such as a face shield.   

When instruction takes place outdoors, face coverings must still be worn when physical distancing cannot be maintained between faculty / staff and students.  

Common spaces: (Hallways, elevators, washrooms, etc.)

Face coverings must be worn by faculty, staff, and students when in any common space inside of the building.  

Private Work Spaces:

Face coverings can be removed when individuals are working in a private (single occupancy) enclosed, work space such as an office.  

Congregated Work Spaces:

Face coverings must be worn in any shared work space when physical distancing cannot be maintained and other controls are not possible.  

If an individual is working alone in what is normally a congregate setting, they are not required to wear PPE.  However, if they access any common spaces, they must wear a face covering to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  

There are some exceptions to the face covering requirement if:

  • the person is a child under the age of two years, or a child under the age of 5 years either chronologically or developmentally and he or she refuses to wear a face covering and cannot be persuaded to do so by their caregiver;
  • the person is incapacitated and unable to remove their mask without assistance;
  • wearing a face covering would inhibit the person’s ability to breathe in any way;
  • for any other medical reason, the person cannot safely wear a face covering such as, but not limited to, respiratory disease, cognitive difficulties or difficulties in hearing or processing information;
  • for any religious reason, the person cannot wear a face covering, or cannot cover the face in a manner that would properly control source.

If you were a student in our Winter 2020 semester and have not yet retrieved the contents of your locker, please contact facilities@cambriancollege.ca and let us know your intentions. We will arrange with you a time for pick up.

Our campus remains closed. Starting in mid-July (subject to change), we are preparing to re-open our campus to students who will be eligible to graduate this semester if they complete components of their programs that can only be delivered through in-person instruction.

The campus will remain closed to all other students at this time. We are also currently working on re-opening plans for students from the Winter 2020 semester who have incomplete grades (I) and who need to complete hands-on components of their courses to advance to their next semester. We hope to have these students return to campus in early August, pending the further lifting of restrictions for on-campus activities.

We expect that our 2020 fall semester will begin with a hybrid model of delivery — meaning a combination of faculty-led remote teaching and learning for those components of our programs that can be delivered remotely, and in-person delivery of the hands-on learning experiences that must take place on campus.  On-campus instruction will increase as restrictions are lifted.

Please see our Campus Re-open Guide on this page for more information on what to expect when you return to campus.

Any student, faculty member or employee who is to return to campus, must first complete a mandatory training module. The module can be found on Moodle and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

When you successfully finish the module, you will receive a certificate of completion that you must produce in order to have access to campus.

Information on classes, labs, placements, co-ops, exams and tests.

Ontario’s public Colleges, including Cambrian, have determined not to provide tuition refunds or rebates due to COVID-19 as students continue to receive the education that will allow them to meet the requirements of their Ministry-approved program, albeit through a different method of delivery.  While the delivery method is different than what many are used to or expected, students will still be provided the opportunity to demonstrate the learning outcomes necessary for course and program completion and successful entry into the workforce.

In many programs where there is a hands-on learning component, our faculty have redesigned courses to provide most of the theory portions upfront (front-loaded) during the first part of the coming semester, allowing students more time to work on hands-on components as the province moves through its re-open phases and we are able to resume more activity on campus.

As well, Cambrian continues to work with the provincial government, public health officials and employers to resume placement opportunities as the province moves to the next phase of re-opening.

To help alleviate some of the financial costs facing students, Cambrian College has increased the amount of emergency financial aid available through our Hardship Fund. We have also eliminated a number of ancillary fees until such a time as our campus and all of its on-site services are available to our students.

The pandemic has created a very fluid and ever-changing dynamic for postsecondary institutions, and we appreciate and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work our way together through this new environment.

Cambrian College has implemented a BYOD policy to ensure a rich and flexible learning experience. Learn more about BYOD by clicking here.

We are preparing to re-open our campus to students who will be eligible to graduate this semester if they complete components of their programs that can only be delivered through in-person instruction.
We hope to re-open the campus for them by mid July (subject to change). The campus will remain closed to all other students at this time.

We are also currently working on re-opening plans for students from the Winter 2020 semester who have incomplete grades (I) and who need to complete hands-on components of their courses to advance to their next semester. We hope to have these students return to campus in early August, pending the further lifting of restrictions for on-campus activities.

Placements in community will only be able to resume once emergency measures have been lifted and our placement partners indicate that they can once again begin accepting placement students.

The minimum technology requirements you will need for online learning are found on each individual program page. See also our BYOD tab in this section.

Students within the Rainbow District School Board can continue communication with Dana Kinsella at kinseld@rscloud.ca. Dana will be in communication with you as well to let you know her availability times during the week for students to connect with her.

Students within the Sudbury Catholic District School Board can continue communication with Kevin Villeneuve at kevin.villeneuve@sudburycatholicschools.ca. Kevin will be in communication with you as well to let you know his availability times during the week for students to connect with him.

Academic upgrading is being offered online. Contact madison.brown@cambriancollege.ca.

Classes for the Spring Semester are being delivered through faculty-led remote learning and we continue to pilot the reopening of campus for some programs. Labs will continue when our campus reopens. We will inform you when that occurs, through myCambrian and your email on file. We have put in place alternative means of assessing student progress in place of in-person exams.

If you have questions, please ask your faculty or program coordinator.

DO NOT drop them off at the college. Instead, send your completed assignments electronically to your professors. If you have questions, contact your professor.

We’re confident you will be able to complete your studies, and receive the learning you need to graduate or advance to the next academic year in your programs.

Student Financial Support

The federal government has announced a number of initiatives to provide financial support to both domestic and international students.

Click here for details.

The federal and provincial governments have announced a 6-month, interest-free moratorium on the repayment of student loans for people already in the process of paying back their loans. To see a list of other financial measures to assist both international and domestic students, go to the question “What support is the Federal Government offering students?” found on this page.

If you have questions about OSAP, please contact our Enrolment Centre at enrolmentcentre@cambriancollege.ca

Treatment of CERB and CESB on OSAP Application

Canada has announced two programs to provide temporary income support for individuals who have lost income due to COVID-19 and are unable to work. These are the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB).

Reporting Income on OSAP Applications

For students with an OSAP application, the CESB and CERB are to be reported in the same way as employment and other non-employment income.  Therefore, only report CESB and/or CERB in the following scenarios:

  • 1-term study period (12-20 weeks): income received over $5,600
  • 2-term study period (21-40 weeks): income received over $11,200
  • 3-term study period (41-52 weeks): income received over $16,800

Only report income on your OSAP application if it exceeds the threshold above for the length of your study period from the following sources:

  1.  Employment Income
  2.  Teaching or Research Assistantships
  3.  Child support and/or spousal support
  4.  Foster parent payments
  5.  Rental income
  6.  Investment income including interest and dividends
  7.  CERB
  8.  CESB

Do not report CERB or CESB as government income.  Continue to report EI as you normally would as government income.

Here is a link to the Government of Canada webpage outlining their support for workers affected by COVID-19.

For updates from the Government of Canada, continue to check this link and the website for the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency.html.

If you have earned $5,000 in the last year, you qualify for the CERB (Canada Emergency Response Benefit). If you have student loans, payments are deferred for six months, interest free.

The Canada Emergency Response Benefit is a Canadian government support program for Canadians facing unemployment due to the Covid-19 emergency. It provides a taxable benefit of up to $2000 CAD per month, for up to four months.

IRCC states,  “All temporary residents who are already in Canada and unable to depart are encouraged to apply for an extension so that they may maintain their temporary resident status in Canada.  Once the application is submitted, the client will benefit from implied status and may remain in Canada until a decision is rendered on their application, or the required documents can be submitted.”

We recommend that you apply as soon as possible before your study permit expires. Please note IRCC states that, “Once the application is submitted, the client will benefit from implied status and may remain in Canada until a decision is rendered on their application, or the required documents can be submitted.”

IRCC states that “In regards to working on or off-campus, given that COVID-19 is beyond a student’s control, international students who were eligible to work on or off-campus can continue to work on or off-campus even if they have been forced to drop to part-time studies or take a break in studies.

However, these students are still subject to the authorized number of hours they would have been permitted had they been full-time students. Therefore, they can work part-time (up to 20 hours a week) off-campus during an academic session and full-time during a regularly scheduled break.

DLIs should be prepared to provide letters of support in the event that a student is questioned regarding how COVID-19 impacted their full-time status.”

At Cambrian College, we want all our employees and students to be well, in body, heart, and mind. We have resources available through The Glenn Crombie Centre for Accessibility and Wellness, our Wellness Team, and our Employee EFAP.

Ergonomics at Home

Studying or working from home shouldn’t be a pain in the neck!

Set up for success!
  • Pick an area where distractions can be minimized, clear any clutter.
  • The couch is not an ergonomic option.
  • Feet flat on the floor – if the chair is too tall, you can use a book or box to rest your feet on.
  • Thighs parallel to the floor, or hips slightly elevated (use a pillow if needed).
  • Back supported with a pillow or rolled up towel if necessary.
  • With a laptop, use a separate keyboard and mouse, and raise the unit up on a stack of books or boxes, so the top of the screen is about eye height.
  • Position your screen 40–75 cm away (about arm’s length), and make the top of the screen about eye height.
  • Give 5–8 cm (2–3 fingers) clearance between edge of seat and back of knees.
  • Keep your neck straight (not forward or backward).
  • Elbows should be at a 90–110º angle.
Don’t forget!
  • Take a 5 minute break every hour, away from the computer, and a lunch break.
  • Eye breaks every 20 minutes (look 20 feet away for 20 seconds).
  • Build a little activity into your day!

For more tips on ergonomics, watch this video and download a copy of our checklist as a quick reference.

Wellness — Community Resources
Messages from Our Leadership

We are halfway through July, which means we are halfway through summer. I hope you are enjoying the warm weather and are taking your vacation time, so you can rest and recharge because the September start-up is just around the corner. 

There have been a couple of noteworthy developments this week. 

First of all, some of our students returned to campus for the first time since March. Over the course of the summer, we will have several groups of students returning to campus, along with the faculty and staff necessary to support them. These students are on-site to complete any outstanding requirements from their 2020 winter semester or the hands-on learning requirements for the current 2020 spring semester.  This development has been very encouraging and has allowed us to pilot many of our campus re-opening policies and procedures with great feedback and refinements.   

To facilitate this, we have put in place a number of infection-control measures and best practices.  We are being extra cautious and are exceeding the standard requirements in order to ensure we are doing everything possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19.   We will continue to adapt and evolve our preventive measures and procedures based upon the advice of Public Health and our observations throughout our implementation.   Please be patient with those providing guidance as we are trying to tweak our methods on a regular basis.  

I would like to highlight a few items for you:

  1.  Anyone returning to campus this summer must complete the mandatory COVID-19 training module, found on Moodle.   Log in and sign up. When you successfully complete the module, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. You can print it or make an electronic copy. You MUST produce it every time you come to campus.
  2. You will also be required to wear a face covering on campus for those times when you are in common areas, and/or physical distancing (minimum 2 metres/6 feet from the nearest person) is not possible.  If you are working in a private space/office with no one else around, you do not need to wear a mask.  But you must put it on when you go into common areas or are in close proximity to others.  You can read our policy on face coverings on our COVID-19 landing page, under the section, Campus and On-campus Services.
  3. You can read more about our campus safety measures in our Re-open Plan and Re-open Guide, both of which are found on our COVID landing page.  These are living documents so please check back regularly to ensure that you have the latest information and guidance.

The week’s other major development starts today. Most of the province, including Greater Sudbury and northeastern Ontario, are now in Stage 3 of the Government of Ontario Re-Opening Plan. As of today, you will be allowed to visit the local playground or splash pad, have dine-in service at restaurants, go to a movie, and take part in gatherings of up to 50 people (indoors) and 100 people (outdoors). If you do, please remember to follow all infection control and social distancing best practices. 

The move to Stage 3 provincially has little direct impact on where we are currently in our own Re-Open Plan (Phase II), however it is very encouraging in regards to our ability move forward with our intended academic delivery plans for the fall semester.   

I want to thank you again for your patience, resourcefulness and dedication during this season of COVID.  Enjoy the summer and take time for yourself over the next number of weeks. 

All the Best!

Bill Best

I want to update you regarding the summer semester for those students who are expecting to return to campus to resume labs.

The Government of Ontario has amended the Emergency Measures Act to allow colleges and universities to re-open their campuses this summer for students in the final semester of their program, who would be eligible to graduate if they complete hands-on / lab components of their program that can only be delivered through in-person instruction.

Beginning next week, several groups of students will resume labs:

  • Pre-Trades – Semester 2
  • Powerline Technician – Semester 4
  • Pre-Service Fire Fighter – Semester 3
  • And effective August 4, Dental Assisting – Semester 3

Unfortunately, the campus must remain closed to everyone else, until further notice, as the provincial government has extended its state of emergency until at least July 15.

We are currently working on re-opening plans for those students who are progressing from one semester to the next and who need to complete hands-on components of their programs. We are hoping to have you back on campus, beginning in early August.  However, this is subject to the further lifting of restrictions for on-campus activities.

Please note, there is no impact on those completing co-ops, placements or capstone projects as this work occurs off-campus or virtually.  To be clear, this work will continue this summer as planned.

To those students impacted by these continued campus restrictions, we apologize for any inconvenience this is causing you. It is our intention to have you back on campus to resume hands-on learning as soon as possible. We will also make sure to share updated plans with you no less than 2 weeks before labs are scheduled to begin.

I would like to thank you personally for your patience and dedication to your education during this pandemic. Please know that we are doing our best to successfully deliver the high-quality education you signed up for and deserve from Cambrian College.

Sincerely,
Paula F. Gouveia, PhD.
Vice President, Academic
Cambrian College

Effective July 8, Public Health Sudbury and Districts has instructed owners and operators of all commercial enterprises to have a policy in place requiring the use of face coverings when inside the premises.  This is in keeping with practices across many provincial jurisdictions and will be implemented in our region later this week.

Cambrian College is not a commercial enterprise by definition, and the public health directive has not yet been applied to post-secondary institutions. However, out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of Cambrian students and staff, we are going to align with these recommendations by the Chief Medial Office of Health for our region, and require that a face covering be worn when inside a College building.

A face covering includes a medical mask or non-medical mask or other covering including a bandana, scarf or cloth (including hijab and niqab) that covers the mouth and nose to ensure a barrier to limit community transmission.  Other forms of face coverings, like face shields or specific medical masks, etc. may be required for specific activities on-campus, for which supervisors and faculty will advise of and provide accordingly if required.

Non-medical face coverings are not required to be worn in single-person offices, though they must be worn when it is NOT possible or predictable to maintain physical distancing (2 metres), such as in hallways, elevators, classrooms and restrooms.  As such, unless you are by yourself in a defined space, a face covering is required to be worn in a College building at all times.

There are some exceptions to the face covering requirement if:

  • the person is a child under the age of two years, or a child under the age of 5 years either chronologically or developmentally and he or she refuses to wear a face covering and cannot be persuaded to do so by their caregiver;
  • the person is incapacitated and unable to remove their mask without assistance;
  • wearing a face covering would inhibit the person’s ability to breathe in any way;
  • for any other medical reason, the person cannot safely wear a face covering such as, but not limited to, respiratory disease, cognitive difficulties or difficulties in hearing or processing information;
  • for any religious reason, the person cannot wear a face covering, or cannot cover the face in a manner that would properly control source.

While individuals are encouraged to provide their own face covering, Cambrian will provide you with one re-usable mask upon arrival at one of our two designated entrances during our re-open pilot.  We are currently working on a broader mask distribution plan that we will share with you as we progress through our re-open phases.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in ensuring that we all work together and do our part to keep ourselves and each other safe.

  • fever (feeling hot to the touch, a temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius or higher)
  • chills
  • cough that’s new or worsening (continuous, more than usual)
  • barking cough, making a whistling noise when breathing (croup)
  • shortness of breath (out of breath, unable to breathe deeply)
  • sore throat
  • difficulty swallowing
  • runny, stuffy or congested nose (not related to seasonal allergies or other known causes or conditions)
  • lost sense of taste or smell

  • Do not touch your face with unwashed hands
  • Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the bend of your elbow. Dispose of used tissue immediately in a covered litter container.
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Avoid other people who are sick

Social distancing is the act of reducing your potential exposure to COVID-19 by limiting close contact with others. Social isolation can include not attending events or space where there are lots of people, and keeping at least 2 metres from the person nearest to you.

Learn more about social distancing at Public Health Sudbury & Districts, www.phsd.ca.

Visit Public Health Sudbury & Districts (www.phsd.ca) for full details on what to do. Here are some key points:

  • Monitor your health for the symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, difficulty breathing)
  • Once you develop these symptoms, isolate yourself as quickly as possible
  • Call your local Public Health organization (in Sudbury, Public Health Sudbury & Districts, 705.522.9200  or toll-free 1.866.522.9200), and call ahead to a physician’s office, clinic, or hospital BEFORE you visit, so they can prepare for your arrival.
  • Students can also choose to inform their program coordinators if they will be away from classes so we can help you with academic accommodation.

The federal government  is advising against all non-essential international travel.

The federal government has closed Canada’s borders to all international visitors, and the border between Canada and the United States is closed to non-essential travel.

Canadian citizens and their immediate family members, permanent residents, diplomats, and air crews will continue are still being allowed into Canada.

Anyone coming into Canada will also have to self-isolate for 14 days, and anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter Canada

It would be therefore wise to avoid any international travel at this time.
