Coming to Campus?

  • All non-employee visitors, including students, must complete a paper form located at the security desk at the front door of each building. The form asks about possible COVID-19 symptoms and about which office you are visiting.
  • Employees are required to submit a health screening form every day they’re on campus and maintain a contact tracing log.
  • All individuals on campus will be expected to practice physical distancing whenever possible and required to wear a facial covering/mask in all shared spaces, including classrooms.
  • Disposable masks will be available at the security desk for those who need one.
  • Please follow all signage and markings indicating distancing requirements, foot traffic flow, etc.
  • Most importantly, if you have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in locations or in close contact with individuals with COVID-19, please do not enter Trocaire College campus buildings.
