COVID-19 vaccinations are required for students, employees, individuals living in residence, and visitors to attend campus for any learning, teaching, or work requirements. The RRC Polytech Mobile Safety App is used to verify vaccination (or approved exemption) status, allowing entry to campus through designed entrances.
Please ensure you upload your proof of vaccination (or approved exemption) at least 48 hours before you’ll be on campus to allow for verification.
Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing will be required for individuals attending campus who have received an approved exemption (medical, creed/religious, other). Exemptions are available for those who cannot be reasonably accommodated through remote work or online learning as a result of the essential on-campus delivery of their program.
The Province of Manitoba’s campaign to immunize all Manitobans against COVID-19 is underway. One of the most important steps we can take as a College community to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated as soon as we can.
The COVID-19 vaccine helps your body develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19, which helps prevent further spread of COVID-19 and protects you from severe outcomes. All vaccines available in Manitoba are safe, effective and administered at no cost.
All employees and students, regardless of health care coverage, are eligible to receive the vaccine. The sooner members of our College community are fully vaccinated the safer our communities become, and the sooner we’re able to provide safe and meaningful on-campus activities.
