Before You Enter Campus

IMPORTANT: We are currently in Phase 2 of our re-entry planning with only essential services and limited hands-on training allowed on campus. For more information about who is on campus during this phase, please refer to our Return to Campus page.

If you are permitted to teach, learn or work at any of our campuses, you must follow these steps before you arrive and once you enter any campus:

  1. Complete the self-screening tool through Shared Health before you come to campus.
    • If the screening tool does not direct you to be tested for COVID-19, you can come to campus.
    • If the screening tool does direct you to be tested for COVID-19, do not come to campus. Please notify your instructor or supervisor, and contact the RRC Health Centre at 204-632-2238. A nurse from the Health Centre will advise you on when you can return to campus.
  2. Employees only: Ensure your supervisor has reviewed the “Departmental Gradual Re-Entry Plan” checklist with you and your team.
  3. Complete the Onsite Check-In tool through HUB so we can keep track of who is on campus (you can access this tool by logging into HUB and clicking the “Add an Onsite Check-in” button).
  4. Enter campus through a designated entrance.
  5. Upon entering campus, wash your hands in the nearest washroom using soap and water, or at a hand sanitizing station. (Hand sanitizing stations will be installed on all campuses by July 15.)
  6. Adhere to physical distancing guidelines at all times.
    • Navigate your way around campus by following directional signage, floor markers, and more.
    • Staff will be on site to help students and employees where needed.
  7. If you are a student, you must wash your hands and leave campus immediately through a designated exit once your on-site training is complete.
NOTE: If you start to feel unwell while on campus, please contact Health Services (204-632-2238) and/or your supervisor to let them know you are ill and need to leave campus immediately. Health Services will let you know if you need to contact Health Links-Info Santé or seek medical treatment.

Wearing a Mask is Voluntary

We have implemented a number of procedures to ensure proper physical distancing while people are on campus. If you don’t have your own, masks will be available at the campus store. Wearing a mask on campus is voluntary, but if you choose to wear one, you must follow the proper process of wearing and removing at all times:

  1. Start by washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  2. Pick up the mask by the ties or loops. Place the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it behind your head or ears.
  3. Adjust the mask to ensure your nose and mouth are fully covered so there are no gaps. Then wash your hands again.
  4. While wearing the mask, avoid touching it or touching your face – and wash your hands if you do.
  5. Once you’re done using the mask, remove it by the ties or loops without touching the front.
  6. Fold the outer parts of the mask together and place it in a clean bag to wash later, or throw it out in the garbage if it is a single use mask. Then wash your hands right away.
  7. Change your mask whenever it becomes moist, dirty or damaged.
  8. Don’t hang the mask from your neck or ears.
  9. Remember, always wash your hands after using a mask.

Physical Distancing Measures

Physical distancing is required at all times on campus. Safety and Health Services has completed physical distancing assessments of all offices, classrooms and common spaces throughout campus. The following describes how we plan to maintain proper physical distancing.

Desks/Working Stations

  • Only one employee will be permitted to use an office that previously seated two people.
  • Supervisors will contact Safety and Health Services to determine a solution where six feet (two metres) of distance cannot be maintained.

Meetings

  • Virtual meetings will be encouraged even when employees are on site.
  • Virtual meetings will be encouraged when conducting business with external parties.
  • Where six feet (two metres) between desks/working stations is not possible, meeting rooms may be re-purposed for physical distanced seating.

Common Areas

As you walk throughout campus, you will notice the following physical distancing measures in place to keep you safe:

Signage

Posters with messaging such as “Please wait here” will be posted around campus near washrooms, elevators, microwaves, etc.

Floor Markers

Floor markers are placed six feet apart to comply with public health requirements. Please watch for these markers as you approach service desks, bathrooms, elevators, classrooms, etc.

Physical Barriers

In some spaces, you will encounter barriers similar to those you may have seen in grocery stores or banks. Please follow any directions provided by staff when you approach a service window.

Caution Tape

Caution tape has been used to mark off common areas and classrooms with restricted access or seating throughout the College. These areas have been deep cleaned and cannot be used at this time.
