Coronavirus Information

What to do when you are self-isolating, experiencing symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.

Post updated: 01/25/2022

RRC Polytech maintains a robust contact tracing system as part of the College’s COVID-19 health and safety measures to ensure a safe learning, teaching and working environment across our campuses.

A reminder that all students and employees must contact RRC Polytech’s Health Centre when self-isolating, experiencing symptoms, test positive for COVID-19, or are a close contact to a confirmed case.

Note that a positive case of COVID-19 includes a positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test at a designated provincial testing site or a positive self-administered rapid-antigen test.

For those who are self-isolating, experiencing symptoms, test positive for COVID-19, or are a close contact of a confirmed case, contact Health Services by using the Reporting Form regarding next steps. Individuals are responsible for contacting their instructor or supervisor to advise of their leave. Additionally, Health Services will follow up with the program/department to confirm that the individual has been directed to remain off campus for a health-related matter.

Students and employees are not permitted to return to campus, other than their residence suite if a resident, unless they are symptom free for 24 hours and authorized by RRC Polytech Health Services to do so.

In the event that you are on campus and become symptomatic, follow the directives below:

  • Contact your instructor/supervisor to advise of your departure.
  • Please leave campus immediately by the most direct route possible.
  • Once home, complete the Shared Health personal screening tool and follow directions.
  • Contact the Health Centre by using the COVID-19 Reporting Form
