Disinfectant wipe stations are available throughout the campus in some common areas, designated classrooms and high traffic shared equipment facilities.

Daily health screening

Community members who are unwell must not attend campus and follow existing absence procedures for employees and/or students.

Mask use

While not required,TMU continues to be a mask-friendly environment. Masks are available as outlined on the Masks and PPE page.


As a primary health and safety measure, the university continues to encourage all who are able to be vaccinated to do so and to remain up-to-date with current COVID-19 vaccinations in the event that COVID 19 Vaccination Policy is reinstated.


The university follows the industry best practices for filter replacement and our air filters meet or exceed the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating recommendations — for filtering fine particles in the air — and guidelines put forward by American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and Public Health.

  • implement preventative strategies in the workplace;
  • determine if remote work arrangements are necessary.
