COVID-19 Information | St. Clair College

Important Safety Information

In preparation for the upcoming start of the Fall 2021 semester, St. Clair College has continued to work diligently with the Ontario Ministry and our local health authorities to provide you with a safe campus environment. In doing so, St. Clair College will be mandating vaccinations or regular testing for all staff and students.

St. Clair College recognizes the importance of immunization to reduce the risk of serious infection and transmission of infection to employees, students, volunteers, contractors and members of the public who physically wish to access College facilities, resources and campuses.

The expectation is for anyone accessing the College facilities to have received their first dose of a Health Canada or World Health Organization approved COVID-19 vaccine prior to the start of post-secondary classes (September 7, 2021).  Second doses will be required within the required minimum period and provide proof that they have done so.  All individuals who attend St. Clair College campuses and facilities must attest to their vaccination status through the Student Information System (SIS) or Synergy system.


Screening/Access to Campus

All staff and students will be required to attest during entry screening that they have either been vaccinated or have completed a rapid test with a negative test result when coming on-site to work.

All St. Clair College employees and students will be asked to declare their vaccination status by selecting one of the five (5) categories listed below:

  1. I am fully vaccinated.  A fully vaccinated individual is defined as “a person who has received the full series of a COVID-19 vaccine or combination of COVID-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization (e.g., two doses of a two-dose vaccine series, or one dose of a single-dose vaccine series); and having received the final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days ago”. Fully vaccinated individuals are asked to voluntarily upload a copy of their second vaccination dose receipt within the SIS self-service.
  2. I have received at least one dose of the vaccine and will receive a second dose when offered or when able to do so, based on provincial criteria but no later than October 15, 2021. You will be required to rapid test until 14-days after your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. I am unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons.
  4. I have chosen not to be vaccinated at this time.
  5. I prefer not to provide St. Clair College with my vaccination status.

Individuals who select categories 2, 3, 4 and 5 will be required to watch an educational video (on the merits of vaccination) and attest to doing so. If vaccination is still not the choice, then regular rapid testing will be required.

Any person who attends on-campus Teaching and Learning activities will be required to be asymptomatic and have completed a negative test prior to entering the worksite.
St. Clair College employees or students who are unvaccinated or choose not to declare their vaccination status will be provided (free of charge) rapid testing kits that must be self-administered at home.  These individuals will be required to complete a negative test every 72 hours and attest to this result through the SIS or Synergy systems.

How Do the Vaccines Work?

Vaccines work by teaching your immune system how to produce antibodies that prevent you from becoming sick if you are exposed to the virus in the future. The vaccine provides your body with something that looks like the virus so that your immune system can learn to identify the virus and produce specific antibodies to fight the virus, without exposing you to the virus that causes COVID-19. All four of the vaccines are administered by injection as a needle in the upper arm.

How effective are the Vaccines?

All COVID-19 vaccines approved by Health Canada are safe and effective against COVID-19. The best way to prevent COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in Canada is to increase population immunity. The more people who receive vaccines, the more we will be able to reduce or prevent community spread. All four approved vaccines are effective at preventing severe, symptomatic infection with COVID-19. Immunity may take up to 14 days to develop, and individuals vaccinated will still be required to follow public health measures. For more information please visit https://www.wechu.org/cv/about-vaccines.
