Downloadable safety protocol resources

We are pleased to share some downloadable resources that explain the health and safety protocols for on-campus activities. Here are the protocols, and scroll down for the graphics! 

  • If you’re sick, stay home: Assess yourself before coming to campus. If you’re experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, including mild symptoms, stay home. You can use the BC Thrive App to assess your symptoms to see if you need a COVID test.
  • Wash your hands. Wash hands regularly with soap and water. It’s the single most effective way to reduce infection spread.
  • Clean surfaces frequently. Clean personal and community shared surfaces to reduce the risk of spreading viruses.
  • Cover your sneeze and cough. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve and turn your head away from others when coughing or sneezing. Wash your hands after.
  • Wear a mask. Non-medical masks must be worn in all indoor spaces. Read our mask protocol FAQs for more details.
  • Follow the direction of public health, including the public health orders, contact tracing and isolation requirements. Here’s what to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Get vaccinated. Everyone eligible is strongly encouraged to get fully immunized against COVID-19. Everyone 18 years and older will be invited to get a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine about six months after their second dose of the vaccine. Learn more.
