Campus Check In & Out
Saint Mary’s University has introduced a new campus check-in procedure for faculty and staff as part of its commitment to providing a safe environment and increasing activities on campus.
Upon arrival on campus, ALL faculty and staff who have the approval to enter a campus building are expected to check-in and check-out by using the form available electronically.
You will be asked to provide:
- email address
- location on campus
- the time of check-in/out
- confirmation of COVID-19 screening criteria
This information will be used only to monitor resource demands on campus or for contact tracing purposes upon request from the Nova Scotia Health Authority in response to a confirmed case of COVID-19 (refer to the Privacy statement at the end of the form for more detail).
- The form must be used by ALL faculty including those using their offices, using their labs who have received approval through the Return to Research protocols, using an area on campus other than their office who have been approved for special access to campus and accessing the Patrick Power Library.
- Faculty members may now work in their personal offices on campus at any time during the workweek (Monday-Friday) provided they use the form to check-in when they arrive and check-out when they leave.
- If an office is shared or there are any circumstances where physical distancing of 2 metres cannot be maintained, please contact your Department Chair to discuss.
- restrictions on in-person meetings on- and off-campus with colleagues or students remain in place.
- Faculty members who wish to access campus to use a facility or resource other than their personal office, and have not already been granted approval (i.e. through Return to Research approvals), must continue to use the special access to campus request process through their respective Dean’s Office.
- The form must be used by ALL staff including those approved to work on campus on a regular schedule and approved for special access to campus.
- The form must also be used by staff entering the Homburg Centre for Health and Wellness, Dauphinee Centre, or O’Donnell-Hennessey Student Centre for work purposes.
- Staff members who are not approved to work on campus will continue to use the special access to campus request process through their respective Senior Management Group member.
While on campus, everyone is required to abide by all Nova Scotia public health directives and advice including but not limited to the following:
- Mandatory requirements for COVID-19 self-screening included in the check-in/out form
- Masks must be worn in all public areas such as hallways and washrooms
- Physical distancing of 2 metres must be maintained at all times
- Maintaining good hygiene practice
