Fleming College COVID-19 Protocols – Update to the Fleming College Community

Fleming is committed to keeping our communities safe and healthy and will continue to follow the advice of public health officials.

We strongly encourage all members of our community to be fully vaccinated, including booster shots.

The College remains a mask-friendly environment and we strongly encourage the use of masks. We ask that all members of the community be respectful of your peer’s decision.

While we encourage full vaccination and masking, neither are mandated at this time, in alignment with provincial guidelines.

The College also asks that if you are feeling ill, please do not come to campus.

All entrances at College facilities are now open. We look forward to seeing you in person.

Returning to Campus - What You Need to Know

Winter 2022 In-Person Schedule

You may see if your program or courses are scheduled to be in person at our campuses on the Program Delivery webpage.

We are looking forward to welcoming students and employees back to our campuses for scheduled in-person (face-to-face) Academic Delivery beginning Monday, January 31. If you are required to come to campus, we ask that you take the following steps in advance of your arrival to help avoid any delays.

All students and employees must take the following steps in prior to arriving to campus:

  1. Download the Fleming Safe App
  2. Submit your Proof of Vaccination (POV) Passport
  3. Submit application for your employee/student ID One Card
  4. Order a Parking Permit if needed

Upon arrival to campus, you will be required to screen-in at our designated entrances. Please have the following items ready to show to our screening team:

  • Your approved Fleming Safe Vaccine Passport
  • Your One Card (or Personal photo ID)
  • Your Green Badge from your daily Fleming Safe Covid-19 Screening

We would like to remind the Fleming College community of the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy in place for everyone, including students, employees, contractors and visitors. Students and employees must submit their Proof of Vaccination through the Fleming Safe App prior to arrival on Campus.

Effective January 4, Ontario residents are required to use their provincial QR code receipt as proof of vaccination within the Fleming Safe App. Earlier receipt versions can no longer be accepted. Once you have downloaded your Ontario QR Code Receipt , you may scan it into your Fleming Safe App Vaccine Passport. Further information regarding the Vaccine Passport process can be found on the Vaccine Passport webpage.

Required Masks - As an extra layer of protection, Fleming College requires all building occupants to wear a tightly fitted procedural mask covering the nose and mouth, while on campus. The procedural mask must be worn in all public areas and at all times when moving around campus. If you arrive to campus without a suitable procedural mask, supplies will be available in our screening areas. More information regarding masking can be found on the MyCampus Return to Campus Toolkit.

One Card - All employees and students are required to have a Fleming College One Card as an employee/student ID when coming to campus. Please apply for your card now and plan to pick up it prior to arrival.

Parking -There are two ways to pay for parking on campus, either a longer-term parking pass or Pay-As-You-Go. If you wish to purchase a semester/annual parking pass, you will need to register your vehicle by visiting the Online Parking Portal. Details on the updated permit types and rates are posted on Parking Permits and Fees. Employees have the option of requesting payroll deductions for parking fees via Human Resources. We have also introduced a partnership with the parking App Hotspot Parking Inc., which provides mobile parking payment solutions for daily parking on our campuses. This new technology offers a convenient way to pay the daily parking rates for use of any of our lots. More details on how to use this convenient new feature can be found by visiting Parking Permits and Fees.​

Plans for the Winter 2022 Semester

Academic planning for the Winter semester continues to evolve. On December 17, the college announced a delay to the start of the semester to January 17, with the first two weeks of all classes being delivered online.

As the Omicron variant continues to spread, we are adjusting plans for the remainder of the Winter semester to limit the number of students and staff on campus. While we had hoped for an increase in on-campus classes this semester, it is prudent to continue much as we had in the fall with only necessary, hands-on classes on campus.

Leaders are working on staffing and service delivery plans for each department or service area and will be communicating their plans with employees by the end of this week, Friday, January 14.

Beginning January 31, program delivery will be a mix of online, on-campus, and hybrid classes.

Specific details about your program can be found on the Program Delivery information page. On this page you can find information related to your program, including specific details about on-campus requirement for your classes and the first day you will need to be on campus. Further details about labs, seminars and other activities related to your program will come from your Dean, Chair or Program Coordinator.

In announcing these changes to the full semester at this time, we want to provide students with as much certainty as we can. We will not make further changes unless mandated by public health regulations or provincial legislation.

Student Services

Student services will continue to be delivered remotely throughout the Winter semester, with some on-campus supports beginning January 31. A detailed list of available services will be posted on our website by Monday, January 17.

Students in Fleming Residences

Students scheduled to move into Fleming residences can continue with their plans. Safety protocols will remain in place including limited capacity, distancing and masking requirements.

Coming to Campus

Only students with scheduled in-person learning should be coming to campus. Students coming on to campus are required to be fully vaccinated, meaning two doses minimum, with a booster highly recommended. Students will continue to do pre-screening through the Fleming Safe app and must have an approved Fleming Safe app passport. Please be sure to upload your vaccination certificates and submit your information to receive your One Card if you have not already done so. Masks must be worn at all times while on campus.

You must not come to campus if you are showing any signs of illness.

We recognize that this will impact plans for some students. We are in the difficult position of balancing the safety of our students and staff with the changing landscape of the pandemic. We are here to support you. If you have any questions, please email
