Quebec Public Health has lifted the requirement that people automatically isolate for five days if they test positive for COVID-19. However, those with symptoms that allow them to leave home should consider wearing a mask to protect others.
Anyone who feels sick or is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 can consult Quebec’s COVID-19 resources.
- Students who need to communicate an absence should contact their professor, research lead or department administrator. They may also wish to consult information on academic accommodations, including reporting short-term absences.
- Staff who cannot report for work due to illness — be it COVID-19-related or other — should follow the regular sick-day process of communicating with their supervisor. Staff with questions regarding sick days, medical leave or accommodation requests can contact the HR medical absences team.
- Faculty members should continue to contact their chair, unit head or dean’s office to communicate an absence.
Those who need non-urgent medical attention can contact Health Services
If you are unsure about when you can return to campus, please consult the Returning to Campus Following your Isolation Period tool.
