August 12, 2020

A member of the Georgian Barrie Campus community has tested positive for COVID-19. The college is working closely with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU). All inquiries related to this case are being referred to SMDHU.

Prior to resuming limited in-person instruction to enable students to complete mandatory practical components of their program, the college activated additional safety measures as part of the college’s Protocol for the Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission. As part of these new measures, building entry screening protocols, mandatory face coverings and enhanced campus cleaning protocols were established.

The college has and will continue to work directly with the SMDHU and will follow their direction.

As per Public Health guidance, all planned on campus activity will continue, unless previously notified.
