Coming to campus this semester? Face shields and face masks are required.


Anyone coming to a Mohawk College campus this spring and summer will be required to wear a college-supplied face mask at all times while on campus. The masks will be available at the security check-in desks and must be worn while on campus. You may request a new mask at any time. Please continue to wear your own mask while travelling to and from the college.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to regularly ensure you are aware of the current requirements for working and learning on campus. This information is available on the Campus Access section of the college’s website.

Face shields are mandatory while in classes and labs until the end of the semester

In addition to wearing a face mask, all students, employees and visitors to campus will be required to wear a face shield while in classrooms and labs. The requirement also extends to any space where it is not always possible to maintain a physical distance of 2 metres (6 feet). While the college encourages the use of face shields in addition to wearing a face mask at all times while on campus, they are not mandatory in spaces where physical distancing can be maintained such as hallways and common areas. They are mandatory in all classrooms and labs, regardless of the physical distancing in place.

Please refer to the Health Protocols section of our website for information on how to safely put on and remove face masks and other required PPE.

If you are coming to campus, Mohawk College will provide you with your first face shield free of charge. The face shields will be distributed at a location near the security check-in desks at each campus. If you lose the face shield that has been provided to you, you will receive a replacement, the cost of which will be charged to your account. Students and employees in programs that are required to wear impact-resistant face shields due to occupational health and safety requirements will be provided with PPE that meets these requirements.

The requirement to wear face shields along with face masks will remain in place until the end of the Summer 2021 semester in August, at which time it will be reviewed.
