3. Health and safety

Please stay home if you are not well. Take the Province of Ontario's COVID-19 self-assessment to determine what to do next. Note your absence through the student absence declaration tool on ACORN or follow the instructions provided by your faculty or department.

Please visit the Environmental Health and Safety website for COVID-19 guidelines and resources.

The way you report your short-term absence depends on your academic division (faculty or campus). Some academic divisions use the Absence Declaration tool in ACORN, while others have their own specific procedures for absence reporting or seeking academic consideration outside of the tool.

For health and safety information, please visit EHS COVID-19 webpage.

The University implemented a range of safety measures across our three campuses in response to COVID-19. Please refer to how U of T is promoting a safe environment for more information.
