Effective Monday, November 23, 2020 at 12:01 a.m., Toronto will enter the grey “Lockdown” phase of the province’s COVID-19 Response Framework for a minimum of 28 days to help halt or interrupt the transmission of COVID-19. Unfortunately, as a result, communal student study spaces, including those in the SLC, will be restricted.
The SLC will be closed to general booking effective Sunday, November 22, 11:59PM (EST) and for the duration of the lockdown will only be available to those in extenuating circumstances who can attest to the essential need to study on campus.
We understand these new protocols might be particularly challenging for some of you. Only those in extenuating circumstances who can attest to the exceptional and essential need to study on campus will be given access to space for the duration of the lockdown. Any students who are permitted to be on campus will be required to review and sign an updated consent waiver.
Should you have exceptional and essential needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a staff member will be in touch with you regarding booking on-campus study space at the SLC.
You can stay up to date on the SLC’s Instagram @ryersonslc.
If your access request has been approved and accommodations are made for to study at the SLC, all COVID-19 guideline apply.
Masks must be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth, while inside the SLC. This is the best way to keep our community safe. An individual may temporarily and briefly remove a mask or face covering when necessary to take a bite of food or a sip of a drink. We ask that between bites and sips you replace your mask, keeping your mask on whenever possible. If you don’t have a mask we will provide you with one.
Personal belongings must be kept to your reserved study space and should not spill over to adjacent desks. This is to ensure effective contact tracing and cleaning.
If you are able to wear a mask and choose not to, or if you choose to ignore social distancing, here is what to expect:
An SLC staff member will talk with you and remind you of our guidelines.
If our staff again see that you are not seated in your assigned seating or are not wearing a mask, you will be reminded a second time.
A third time will result in being asked to leave the SLC for the remainder of the day.
You can continue to book at the SLC, however if you continue to choose not to comply we may have to remove your booking privileges in the future. We can only operate if we all do our part.
Any students who are permitted to be on campus will be required must arrive at the SLC with your OneCard, be prepared to show your reservation email confirmation, and review and sign an updated consent waiver at check-in.
