Submit your proof of vaccination by Monday if you are accessing campus this fall

September 17, 2021

To: All faculty and staff

On Wednesday, September 8, the university released details on the process to submit proof of vaccination.

While the process to submit proof has been live for just one week, there has been great uptake by our community and most individuals who have completed the process indicated they are fully vaccinated. This speaks to our community’s continued commitment to supporting the health and safety measures put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus, and we want to say thank you to those who have already completed this process.

Please forward your proof of completion to your direct supervisor

In the app, you are required to input your supervisor’s email address. Unfortunately, at this time the confirmation email is not automatically sent to your supervisor. We are working on including this functionality soon. As a result, faculty and staff are required to forward the email they receive after completing the process on the RyersonSafe app to their supervisor/Ryerson contact. This proof of completion will include the QR code and vaccine status.

Key policy dates

As a reminder, only those who anticipate accessing campus or in-person activities during the fall semester are required to submit their vaccination status at this time.

Date Policy step
Tues. Sept. 7, 2021 Effective date of the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. Individuals accessing campus in the fall semester must be fully vaccinated or participate in the Rapid Antigen Testing Program.
Wed. Sept. 8, 2021

Community members may begin to submit proof of vaccination via the RyersonSafe app to indicate:

  • I am fully vaccinated. This requires uploading proof of vaccination. Individuals receive a green badge with an “Approved” status upon completion.
  • I am not fully vaccinated. Individuals receive a red badge with a “Not Approved” status and are directed to enrol in the Rapid Antigen Testing Program.
  • I intend to apply for an exemption. Individuals receive an orange badge with a “Not Complete” status and are directed to enrol in the Rapid Antigen Testing Program and to apply for an exemption.

Faculty and staff who submit their proof of vaccination are required to forward the RyersonSafe proof of completion to their direct supervisors.

Upcoming:

Individuals attending campus in the fall semester must have submitted their vaccine status in RyersonSafe, including proof if they are fully vaccinated.

Only individuals who are still working towards becoming fully vaccinated or those who have applied for an exemption will be eligible for the Rapid Antigen Testing Program to access campus.
Mon. Oct. 18, 2021

Individuals must be fully vaccinated in order to access campus or in-person activities, unless an exemption is granted by the university. Individuals who receive an exemption are still required to participate in the Rapid Antigen Testing Program.

As of this date, individuals who are not fully vaccinated and have not been granted an exemption will no longer be allowed to access campus.

More information to follow on winter timelines
