COVID-19 Updates

On this page you will find all the latest and ongoing updates related to COVID-19 and the York University School of Continuing Studies.

COVID-19 FAQ

The School of Continuing Studies is offering both online and on-campus programs. Students who are enrolled in on-campus programs, must follow the vaccination policy (https://www.yorku.ca/secretariat/policies/policies/covid-19-vaccination-mandate/). That means they must declare their vaccination status and show proof of being fully vaccinated here: https://yorku.ubixhealth.com/login

Anyone who accesses a York University campus for any reason (including students in 100% online programs) must complete the YU Screen https://yorku.ubixhealth.com/login prior to arriving every day to ensure you do not have COVID-19 symptoms and follow the mask guidelines. The YU Screen process will require you to upload proof of full vaccination.

We thank you for your understanding and flexibility and ask that students regularly check their email for new communications. We will also post updates on the following Social Media platforms:

Your health and well-being, and that of our broader community, is our top priority. We will continue to provide relevant institutional and public health updates as soon as they become available to us.
