CINDE Hamilton location as of August 23, 2021.  Mandatory vaccinations NOW needed to access the campus.   Information on the process for collecting vaccine information, entry to campus (there are now 2 Security Checkpoints available) and any other requirements will also be found through the COVID-19 Update webpage.    Please check this page often as the information can change (i.e. on PPE requirements, designated entrances and daily health screening).
 
Proof of Vaccination Submission to Mohawk College:  For those who have received or plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, the process for submitting proof of vaccination can found here  This requirement will remain in place throughout the 2021-22 academic year.
 
Request for an Exemption:  For those who would like to request an exemption for medical, religion/creed, or other reasons, the process for requesting an exemption can be found here:  Vaccination exemptions may be granted to people who have either a medical accommodation or an objection based on disability or creed.  People with approved exemptions will be required to be tested regularly and demonstrate a negative COVID-19 result in order to attend their work or lessons on campus.  In an effort to support you through this process, Mohawk will be hosting vaccination clinics for people who still need to be vaccinated, September 9 and September 15 (please note there could be a wait time).
 
PROCEDURES FOR ENTRANCE TO MOHAWK COLLEGE ONCE UPLOADED VACCINES HAVE BEEN APPROVED BY MOHAWK (see above):
1) A non-medical mask AND face shield (provided by Mohawk Security upon entrance into the College; ask for one if they do not issue one) must be worn at all times where a 2 metre social distancing is not possible.  Visitors are required to follow social distancing guidelines when on the campus (2m distance between others).
 
2) After passing through one of the Mohawk College Security checkpoints, continue to the CINDE designated waiting area (Main Administration Office E006A) in the hallway.  You will be required to have your temperature taken via a non-contact thermometer as well as signing a waiver (health declaration) at the main office before entering the office/class.   Please review our COVID-19 Acknowledgement, Waiver and Indemnification policy before arriving to the CINDE Office for any course, workshop or exam.  Upon your arrival, you will be asked to complete it with your name and signature and then witnessed by a CINDE Staff member.

3) We will be registering one (1) student at a time in the administration area. Students will then be directed to the Exit and sent to their training/exam room.  Regular social distancing rules and hygiene will be required (hand sanitizer available in each classroom, exam room, and administration area).
 
Important Notes
-Parking will be charged as of Sept 1st. Please park in any of the designated parking areas (general parking). We recommend choosing a parking location that is close to one of the security entrance checkpoints (see map on main website page).. Click here for parking details.
-For exam candidates, lockers will be provided. Please bring minimal possessions with you.
-Steps 1-3 will be required each day while attending Mohawk College.

Additional precautions that CINDE is taking to increase health and safety of staff, students, and community:
1) The reception area in E006A is a one-way traffic area and has a Plexiglas shield between the reception staff and students to decrease the chance of virus transmission.
2) Social distancing guidelines (2m distance between staff/students) are in place to ensure the safety of all students. Where distance guidelines cannot be followed, masks and hand sanitizer will be used to decrease the probability of transmission.
3) Hand sanitizer will be provided at all classroom doors so that students can practice increased hand sanitizing.
4) All surfaces will be disinfected and then also sprayed with Clorox electrostatic disinfectant spray.
5) We will continue to limit the number of staff working at the facility to limit the possibility of exposure to students and staff.

In the meantime we encourage any customers who have not done so to start the vaccination process to avoid any potential service interruption.
