Safety measures Mask use

Masks are mandatory in Summer Term beginning May 4. KN95 masks are highly recommended, but 3-ply medical masks (minimum ASTM Grade 2) are also acceptable.

Masks must be worn in all indoor spaces on UM campuses, with some exceptions. 

Masks must be worn in all indoor spaces, including: 

  • all common spaces 
  • classrooms 
  • labs doorways
  • corridors
  • work spaces
  • all libraries
  • all study spaces 

UM will supply all necessary masks, both KN95 masks (highly recommended) and the 3-ply medical masks (minimum ASTM Grade 2), which are also acceptable.

No eye protection is required except that for specific occupational health and safety requirements outside of the COVID-19 context (e.g. safety glasses in labs, clinical skills sessions). 

No masks required in these spaces: 

  • When alone in closed door space  
  • When consuming food/beverage in a location designated for food consumption (no food or drink is allowed in study spaces) 
  • Any outdoor space 

Please ensure your mask is fitted properly to maintain maximum effectiveness.

Unless you are in a food-designated area, you must keep your mask on and covering your mouth and nose at virtually all times, including:

  • indoors even when physical distancing is possible
  • trips to the bathroom
  • participating in UM-sanctioned activities off-campus at any time when two metres distancing is not possible

It is recommended that disposable masks are worn for only one day before being properly disposed of.

Rapid test kits

The University of Manitoba is partnering with the Province for the distribution of rapid test kits.  Rapid test kits will be available at the mask distribution tables until supplies run out.

UM is not mandating a requirement to rapid test but rather providing the UM community with rapid tests to make it easier for faculty/staff/students to test at home if you are feeling symptomatic and therefore not coming to campus sick.

Mask distribution

As of May 2, the following mask distribution sites are open for students:  

  • Machray Hall (Fort Garry campus)  
  • UMSU University Centre (Fort Garry campus) 
  • Brodie Centre (Bannatyne campus)  

These sites will remain open for two weeks. Both KN95 masks (highly recommended) and the 3-ply medical masks (minimum ASTM Grade 2) which are also acceptable, are being distributed at these student distribution sites.

Students can also pick up masks at the UMSU Service Centre in University Centre. UMSU Service Centre hours: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Staff should contact their units, faculties or departments for masks.

Masks are also available at the following libraries throughout the Summer Term:

Hours

  • Elizabeth Dafoe Library 
  • Science & Technology Library 
  • E. K. Williams Law Library
  • Architecture/Fine Arts Library
  • Eckhardt-Gramatté Music Library
  • Father Harold Drake (St. Pauls College) Library
  • Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library (Bannatyne) 

Please visit the Libraries website for the most current hours.

UM has PPE recycling collection bins at both Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses.

Safety measures Enhanced cleaning and hygiene

Hand hygiene

For information about COVID-19 and how it spreads, visit the Province of Manitoba website

Hand washing: Handwashing posters have been placed by sinks in most bathrooms on campus. All UM members should review proper handwashing technique:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds including palms, backs of each hand, between fingers, thumbs and under nails. Rinse and dry hands well. 
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 

Hands should be washed in the following situations:

  • Upon arrival in the workplace
  • After work in close contact with another employee (less than 2 metres)
  • If hands are soiled/dirty
  • After using the bathroom
  • At the end of the day
  • Upon arrival at home

Hand sanitizer stations are available at the entrance of all campus buildings. 

Cough etiquette

When coughing or sneezing:

  • cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
  • dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a waste basket and wash your hands afterwards

Enhanced cleaning and ventilation

Please see the Preparation and Prevention section for improved ventilation and environmental cleaning measures.  

Please direct inquiries regarding ventilation to the Operations & Maintenance customer service desk at ppwod@umanitoba.ca or banwod@umanitoba.ca .  

For any concerns regarding environment, health and safety at UM, contact the Environment, Health and Safety Office at EHSO@umanitoba.ca

Testing and illness

Stay home when you are sick. The health and safety of our UM community remains our top priority. If you are not feeling well, go home immediately or stay home and use the Shared Health Screening Tool to determine if you should be tested.

You can call 1-877-308-9038 to access the screening tool in an interactive voice response format (IVR).

Before coming to campus

It is essential that employees and students self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and/or exposures before attending to any on-campus activities. 

If the checklist advises you not to enter, stay home, isolate and refer to the:

If you need to take a test for COVID-19

Rapid tests are available through units. Inquire with your supervisor or dean.

    If you test positive for COVID-19 (updated March 18, 2022)

    UM will respect privacy protocols while ensuring we provide timely communications to support the health and safety of the UM community and limit the spread of COVID-19. 

    If you receive a positive test result for COVID-19, you must follow all directives from Manitoba Public Health and do not travel to the University. If you test positive for COVID-19, please fill out the COVID-19 Reporting Form.

    There is no obligation for you to report your test result. However, anyone that is symptomatic and not willing to report their test results must stay off-campus for at least five days. Please refer to the process flow charts for more information.

    If you are symptomatic or test positive for COVID-19 and need to self-isolate:

    Students enrolled in an in-person course should immediately contact their instructor to make arrangements for extensions, deferrals or make-up assignments without academic penalty. The missed academic work form can be used to help communicate with your instructor.

    Faculty and instructors teaching in-person should contact their dean or department head to make alternate arrangements for the course instruction.

    Staff working on campus should contact their supervisor to discuss their absence from work or if possible, make remote work arrangements.

    If you’re a student in residence, visit the Student Residences coronavirus support page

    Faculty and staff: If a member of the community reports to you that they are positive for COVID-19, please ask them to fill out the COVID-19 Reporting Form.

    Close contacts (updated Dec. 2021)

    In most situations, public health officials will no longer be notifying close contacts of those infected with COVID-19. Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 will be asked to identify and notify their contacts.  

    Who is considered a close contact?  

    Close contacts are the people you were around two days before the start of your symptoms, as well as 10 days after your symptoms develop. This is your period of communicability, when you were most likely to spread COVID-19 to others. For cases who tested positive without symptoms, the period of communicability extends from two days before your lab test to 10 days after you had the test.  

    Close contacts are people who you have shared space with during your period of communicability. Specifically, these are people you were within two metres/six feet for a total of 10 minutes over a 24-hour period.  

    Resources to assist with identifying close contacts 

    Please use the Province of Manitoba’s Contact Tracing Tool. You can also use the Manitoba Government – Close Contact Notification page to learn more about what you need to do to reach out to close contacts and keep our community safe. 

    On-campus exposures

    In the case of exposure on a UM campus, the university will publish a notice of the date(s)/time(s)/location(s) an exposure may have occurred.

    Preparation and prevention

    UM’s guiding principles for COVID-19 health and safety

    During the pandemic, the COVID Recovery Working Group has established five guiding principles to inform its work:

    • The health and safety of students, staff, faculty and visitors is the over-arching priority.
    • All students, staff and faculty will work remotely unless approval has been granted to work on campus. 
    • Any activity on campus, whatever its nature, will be carried out while strictly respecting the constraints of public health authorities and in accordance with government guidelines and directives. 
    • Recovery of on-campus activities will be gradual and in keeping with the University’s stated principles and recovery plan. 
    • The University will continue to take into consideration and accommodate special circumstances for staff, faculty and students, including health conditions. 

    Environmental measures

    Building Ventilation Measures

    UM heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are maintained in accordance with the requirements for building occupancy, and are maintained regularly for filter and operating conditions. The UM HVAC systems meet the standards in place at the time of construction or renovation, and provide good ventilation to our campus buildings. These standards are supported by the Government of Canada and are part of the guidance for ventilation created by the Public Health Agency of Canada to prevent COVID transmission.

    Well-functioning HVAC systems support overall COVID-19 safety protocols (measures such as vaccinations and masking) by removing and diluting aerosols that may contain viruses from indoor spaces.

    It is important to note that adjusting ventilation will not affect transmission between individuals who are in close proximity. Practicing safety fundamentals—properly wearing a well-fitting mask, frequent hand hygiene—is of utmost importance.

    UM has enhanced ventilation protocols—many of which have been in place since early 2020—by reviewing ventilation systems and working to optimize the capabilities of these systems.

    Some additional measures that have been taken are: 

    • Filters inspected to ensure they are functioning properly. 
    • All demand ventilation systems disabled to keep the air handling operating at full capacity even during low-occupancy periods. 
    • As seasonal conditions allow, mixed air systems are set to 100% fresh air. 

    With these enhancements in place, operations of the university's ventilation systems align with COVID-19 public health requirements and recommendations, as outlined by COVID safety recommendations.

    Improved Ventilation

    These measures are being implemented across campus:

    1. Increasing outdoor air intake: As seasonal conditions allow, ventilation systems on campus are optimized within system capabilities to maximize the amount of outdoor air being supplied to classrooms and other building areas. Increased outdoor air supply to building spaces has been identified by COVID safety recommendations as a key measure that may help in reducing the spread of COVID-19 within buildings. 
    2. Increasing air exchanges by extending fan run-times: Operating schedules for ventilation systems on campus extended to include times before and after building occupied hours, and in some cases to run 24/7. This will increase the number of daily air exchanges and ensure that spaces are well-ventilated. COVID safety recommendations  recommend this practice to increase the amount of air exchanges within building spaces to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. 
    3. Checking filters: To ensure ventilation system filtration is working optimally within system designs, filters are checked frequently as part of the regularly scheduled preventative maintenance routines. Routine inspections and maintenance can be helpful in reducing the spread of viruses. Most Fort Garry campus buildings have MERV 8 filters, with some renovated buildings having up to MERV 14. All Bannatyne campus buildings have been upgraded to MERV 11 filters with many buildings having MERV 14 additional filters. In many cases, pre-filters are used to extend the life of the main filter. The ASHRAE recommendations are reviewed and followed as closely as possible: https://www.ashrae.org/technical-resources/filtration-disinfection
    4. Preventative maintenance: All campus ventilation systems are catalogued within our Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) and receive regular preventative maintenance service routines, including filter changes, inspections and repairs as needed. Filters are checked monthly and can last from 1-2 months to 6-12 months depending on the area and the outside conditions. 
    5. Air purifiers: Local air purification systems may be considered in areas without sufficient ventilation systems. Some users may use a local HEPA filtration unit in their work area as an additional measure, but these are not deemed as necessary for many of the campus areas. For the few buildings identified as unsuitable for use by more than 2 or 3 persons at a time, faculty have been notified.
