As of May 1, 2022, the completion of YU Screen prior to attending campus is encouraged for all York community members as a method of self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms or the requirement to self-isolate. Community members should continue to monitor their health and not attend campus if they are feeling unwell. The University’s case and contact management teams will continue to support those who report symptoms and/or fail YU Screen.
All information related to screening or that is collected through YU Screen is kept confidential, and York is committed to the protection of privacy, as required under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). Information that is collected through the YU Screen tool is encrypted and stored on servers that are located in Canada, in compliance with York’s security and privacy assessments.
Check if you have any COVID-19-like symptoms (without a known cause) on an on-going basis.
York utilizes an Incident Management Protocol to isolate and contain all situations that arise for those that come onto our campuses and for those within our live-in community. We liaise closely with public health authorities, follow their guidance and provide all necessary information to assist any public health investigation. Case management for students, staff and faculty will be supported by the appropriate offices within York University for on-campus COVID-19 related exposures.
Community members who fail screening (true or accidental) will receive direction and/or a follow up communication from EWB, Student Case and Contact Management, or York Quarantine Program to determine clearance criteria. If you need more urgent follow up due to an accidental failed screening, employees and faculty please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Students, please contact Office of Vice Provost & Academic - Case & Contact Management team:. YORK-StudentCCM@yuoffice.yorku.ca.
