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.
