COVID-19 Information for Public, Staff, and Students

SIIT COVID-19 Operational Protocols (PDF)

February 22,2022

On February 8, Premier Moe announced that the Government of Saskatchewan will be ending all Proof of Vaccination requirements as of midnight on February 13, 2022, and all remaining public health orders (masking, social distancing, etc.) as of midnight on February 28, 2022.

As we move into this new environment, we ask that all staff and students continue to be socially responsible, self-monitor and stay home when sick.

Case Tracking and Reporting Illness

Please continue to report any positive cases to your supervisor and the COVID-19 Response Coordinator, Rilyn Jurgens at jurgensr@siit.ca until February 28, 2022. On or after March 1st, 2022, SIIT will no longer require reporting of positive COVID-19 cases.

As of this date, any sick leaves will revert to internal Staff and Student leave policies which require notification of supervisor/instructor and medical documentation from a licensed health professional for any absence of three (3) consecutive days or more. Rapid tests will not be recognized as satisfactory documentation for leaves.

Travel

In person travel and meetings can resume with appropriate safety measures in place. If you are unsure about your travel/meeting safety plans, please reach out to your supervisor for coaching and support.
