COVID-19 Information for Public, Staff, and Students
As we begin the 2021-2022 academic year, the health and safety of all staff, students, clients and visitors are of the utmost importance. We strongly encourage everyone to get double vaccinated and will be providing on-site vaccination clinics at our three campus locations this fall. While no decision has been made at this point to require all staff, students and those visiting our facilities to be double vaccinated, we will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully should we need to implement a double vaccine mandate at the beginning of 2022, or upon direction from the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The following safety precautions will be in effect as of August 30, 2021, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmissions within our learning community.
SIIT Operational Protocols
- Masks are required in all public areas;
- Staff, students, clients and visitors will not be allowed to enter a SIIT facility if they have cold/flu like symptoms, have traveled outside of Canada within the last 14 days, or have been in close contact with a positive case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days;
- Maintain social distance where possible;
- The Saskatchewan Health Authority will lead any contact tracing – this will not be managed by SIIT;
- Staff and students are asked to notify their manager/instructor if they have received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis;
