Library health and safety

Updated May 2022

The University, including U of T Libraries, is keeping its masking policy in place until June 30, 2022.

The safety of our campus community continues to remain a priority and we will continue to follow public health guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Please self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms before you plan to visit campus, using the provincial self-assessment tool. Self-assessment signs are also posted at the entrance. Stay home if you are feeling unwell.

  • The University of Toronto, including the University of Toronto Libraries, no longer requires proof of vaccination or rapid screening to be on campus – this was paused as of May 1, 2022
  • Health screening and contact tracing became unavailable in UCheck as of May 1, 2022
  • These features may be reinstated with little notice in the event that public health guidance or recommendations change
