      Is anyone setting up spaces to support on site proctored testing?

      If so, are you restricting the room capacities at a specific occupancy level, even if you could add additional occupants using social distancing standards of 2m?

      We were previously restricting room sizes in line with the governments mandate, but they have dropped from 50 to 25.

      Hi Brent – Fanshawe has only restricted capacities to support safe physical distancing.  Colleges are exempt from the mandate.  For example, our gymnasium supports testing for 102 individuals.

      Hi Brent, Rich,
      We have been using the following from O. Reg. 364: Rules for Areas in Stage 3

      In-person teaching and instruction

      5.(1) Subject to subsection (2), the person responsible for a business or place that is open and that provides in-person teaching or instruction shall ensure that every instructional space complies with the following conditions:

      1.  The instructional space must be operated to enable students to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the instructional space, except where necessary for teaching and instruction that cannot be effectively provided if physical distancing is maintained.

      2.  The total number of students permitted to be in each instructional space at any one time must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the business or place, and in any event cannot exceed,
      i.  50 persons, if the instructional space is indoors, or
      ii.  100 persons, if the instructional space is outdoors.
