Prior to Arriving on Campus
- By September 7, 2021, all employees and students who wish to visit campus must have received one dose of a Health Canada or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated no later than November 1, 2021.
- You are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving your second dose.
- To meet the November 1, 2021 deadline, the second dose of the vaccine must be received no later than October 18, 2021.
- Those who are not fully vaccinated will be subject to a rapid testing protocol and must produce a negative result within 72 hours prior to gaining access to campus. Rapid testing will be available on campus from September 7, 2021, to November 1, 2021, and occur on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
- It is the responsibility of staff and students to obtain a rapid test, and to produce a negative test result, within the 72-hour window in order to be present on campus for any reason. As of November 1, 2021, access to campus will require full vaccination unless a formal exemption has been granted.
- Submit your proof of vaccination through the College’s Personal Protective Application (PPA). Users must log on with their Loyalist College credentials (email address and password).
- The Application can be downloaded on your computer or mobile device using one of these links: Windows Desktop, Apple App Store, Google Play Store.
- The PPA is to be used for your personal COVID screening every time you come to campus as well as uploading proof of vaccinations and proof of a negative COVID test. This data will be used by Public Health for the purposes of contact tracing and by Loyalist College for compliance with the policy.
- Requests for a vaccine exemption must be submitted through the College’s Personal Protective Application (PPA). Requests must include a completed form as per below. Exemption request forms may be downloaded from the myLoyalist portal:

- Request Form: Creed/Religion Exemption from COVID-19 Vaccine
- Exemptions will be adjudicated by a third party and decisions will be communicated to the applicant via the Personal Protective Application (PPA). Please note that an approved exemption does not necessarily mean that you can come to campus. The College will review all approved exemptions to determine the appropriate accommodation that can be provided.

Mandatory Face Masks
All individuals must wear non-medical masks/face coverings inside Loyalist College buildings.
The College will provide students and staff with reusable cloth masks; we encourage you to bring these masks with you when coming to campus. If needed, a supply of disposable masks is available on-site, including at the main entrance.
Masks must be worn appropriately in order to be effective. This means they must cover your nose and mouth. We do not permit the use of valved masks or plastic mouth shields on the premises. It is important to clean your cloth masks regularly.
There are some exceptions that apply. A mask is not required if you:
- Are outdoors and maintain a two-metre distance from others;
- Have a proof of an exemption for a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask/face covering safely; or
- Are in an area not open to the public (e.g. in a private office) and by yourself
Masks are still required when you are:
- Entering and leaving campus buildings; or
- Travelling to or through public areas such as hallways or washrooms
