COVID-19 Update on CIRHR Services and Operation

UPDATED - APRIL 28, 2022

The Centre continues to take direction from the broader University as it plans for a safe, gradual return to campus in consultation with our community and public health experts.

In light of the recent provincial trends, the University has extended its requirement to wear masks in certain settings until June 30, 2022. Please continue to monitor the University of Toronto’s COVID-19 Planning Updates page for the most up-to-date guidance.

Health screening and contact tracing will become unavailable in UCheck on May 1, 2022, but these features may be reinstated with little notice if public health recommendations change.

While health screening through UCheck is unavailable, individuals can monitor their health using the provincial health screening tool. Completing a health screening before coming to campus is highly recommended, and we continue to ask members of our community to remain at home if they are ill.

Some of our CIRHR staff and faculty members continue to work remotely. The IRHR library remains opens to current students, staff, and faculty of the Centre.
