TMU community members strongly recommended to wear masks
As we enter the winter season, the university is reminding our community of the important role we each play in helping to limit the spread of COVID-19, the flu and other respiratory illnesses on our campus.
On November 14, 2022, Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) strongly recommended that residents of Ontario wear masks in indoor spaces. While the university’s mask policy is currently on pause, in line with the CMOH’s guidance, the university continues to strongly recommend that community members wear a well-fitted mask while indoors, particularly in crowded spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained. As we enter exam season, we are also reminding students of the importance of wearing masks while writing in-person exams.
The university continues to have cloth, medical grade and fitted masks, such as N95s available for university community members who want them. For more information, visit the Masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) page online.
Masks should be well-fitted and worn in a way that covers your mouth, nose and chin.

University will continue to monitor government and public health guidance
The university continues to monitor government and public health guidance, laws, and sector standards, and will remain nimble in responding to changes and in planning for the future. Should public health indicators change, the university may need to reinstate requirements for masking and vaccines.
