COVID-19 protocols on campus: Exposure, symptoms or positive test results

New provincial guidelines and the full implementation of Conestoga's COVID Community Safety policy have changed the college's response to identified cases on campus. All students, employees and visitors accessing Conestoga campuses and sites need to show proof of full vaccination or an approved exemption.

Students, employees and visitors who have been exposed, have symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19 should follow provincial guidelines. Please refer to the Government of Ontario for the latest information and guidance.

In addition to provincial guidelines, Conestoga students, employees and visitors on campus should follow the college's protocols if they have been exposed, have symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. The guide below can be used to help identify the proper steps to follow.
