COVID-19 Update on CIRHR Services and Operation

All University buildings will be closed as of 11:59 pm, March 17, 2020 to the general public. This includes the Centre’s offices and IRHR library.

As of July 7th, non-medical masks or face coverings are required in U of T spaces that are normally publicly accessible. More information on U of T's mask policy is available here.

Public health guidance now require that post-secondary institutions implement COVID-19 health screening for anyone coming to campus. In order to comply with these directives, a self-assessment is now required for all members of our community, including faculty members, librarians, staff, and students, each day they visit any one of the three U of T campuses or any other property owned or operated by U of T. 

There are two ways that individuals can complete the required self-assessment and generate a risk status each time they come to U of T: by using UCheck, or by completing a paper-based or offline self-assessment log.

 Visit the UCheck web portal
