Campus during COVID-19
UBC’s policy on non-medical masks
Masks are not required in UBC public indoor spaces after June 30, 2022. As a reminder, students, faculty and staff who take part in academic activities outside of university campuses are still required to wear a mask if mandated by a Public Health Order; for example, in health care settings. More.
All members of the UBC community are strongly encouraged to receive a vaccination and if eligible, receive their booster dose, which minimizes the severity of illness and transmission to others. In BC, vaccines are available for incoming international students, who can receive their vaccinations after arriving in Canada. Learn more at https://immunizebc.ca.
UBC’s COVID-19 campus rules
The COVID-19 Campus Rules are framed around Step 3 of the BC Restart plan:
- Daily health self-assessments: A daily self-health assessment is required before attending campus. Sending your daily-self assessment confirmation to your supervisor is no longer required. Download the UBC Safe Vancouver app, which has a simple COVID-19 Daily Health Assessment Tool.
- Stay home if you are sick: If you feel sick stay home use the Thrive Health self-assessment tool for guidance. Follow the advice from Public Health.
- Signage: Everyone must follow relevant signage when moving around UBC campuses or worksites.
- COVID-19 safety plans & communicable disease plans: Supervisors will ensure that all faculty, staff and contractors are familiar with the latest guidance from the Provincial Health Officer as it relates to their work areas.
