The photo permits are for outdoor areas of campus only and attendees of photo permits would be considered a member of the public. A member of the public refers to anyone coming to a McMaster location and staying outside only, or only coming into a building for less than 15 minutes.
For example, a member of the public includes anyone who does not have MacID and is coming to a McMaster location to enjoy a walk outside or delivery personnel.
Members of the public must follow all other local Public Health guidelines and McMaster health and safety measures while attending a McMaster location.
Individuals must not attend a McMaster location if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or are otherwise unable to successfully complete the provincial government’s COVID-19 self assessment.
Members of the public do not need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend a McMaster location.
