COVID-19 Updates

There have been many initiatives taken by our community in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This page contains resources that will keep you informed and up-to-date about Ted Rogers School classes and activities.

The Ted Rogers School returned to in-person learning on February 28. Classes labelled “Virtual Classroom” in MyServiceHub will remain virtual. This is subject as always to updated guidance from Toronto Public Health and the Government of Ontario.

The university anticipates a full return to in-person learning and teaching; some exceptions will remain with online delivery for a small number of courses (Update on the Fall 2022 semester). If your your course is offered online, then the instructor will provide details via D2L and/or email. Please ensure that you check your university affiliated email and D2L shells regularly. 

For any courses that you take in other Faculties (eg. Liberal Studies), please check the individual D2L course shells for information about course delivery.

You are welcome to come in and use the spaces available for you to study in the Ted Rogers School building at 55 Dundas Street West. Similar to the winter semester, student activities and staff members will be available in person. Ted’s Kitchen is now open for business!

When we are able to return to class at the Ted Rogers School — here’s what to expect — and what’s expected of you.

If you feel ill or have COVID-19 symptoms, stay home. 

Notify your professor so you may make alternate assignment arrangements. If you have COVID-19 symptoms that will cause you to miss an assessment, please submit your Academic Consideration Request form (opens in new window)  online. (Note that no doctor’s note is needed).

The university remains committed to the health of our community. Continued individual vigilance is critical in controlling the spread of COVID-19; community members should continue to monitor their health for any symptoms and follow guidance from Toronto Public Health (external link)  if you think you may have COVID-19 or are a close contact of someone who does. 

No food in class, please. 

If you need to drink in class, you may momentarily move your mask. Better yet, bring a straw.

Designated places will be assigned for students to eat. More information coming soon. Update from the Toronto Met Eats team.

Follow signage to manage your movements inside the school.

While the university’s mask policy is currently on pause, we do recommend that community members wear a well-fitted mask while indoors, particularly when sharing small enclosed spaces with others where physical distance cannot be maintained, such as elevators and small meeting rooms.

Use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. If you don’t have your own, there will be sanitizer and wipes available in the building.

During the winter 2022 semester, exterior entrances to campus buildings will be locked and only accessible by tapping your OneCard against the card reader to gain entry. If you do not already have a OneCard or need a replacement, please visit the OneCard website for more information.

Different facilities may have different rules. 

Covid protocols are common across the University (i.e. mask usage, sanitation and screening status), however some campus buildings may have additional rules implemented in those locations to better serve students. If you have classes in other buildings on campus, please learn the unique rules and abide by any requests.

These guidelines have been developed in alignment with public health recommendations. Every person working and learning at the Ted Rogers School is subject to these rules.

Remember — we are all in this together, and we will get through it together as a community if we maintain the same high level of collegiality for which our school has long been celebrated. Be cooperative and civil with each other. Be patient. Be kind. Be supportive of others.

While our commitment is to provide you with up-to-date information about the Ted Rogers School, the most comprehensive Toronto Metropolitan University resource for student information related to COVID-19 may be found at the university's COVID-19 Information and Update website. Please check back regularly for updates.
