The health and safety of the UNBC community is of utmost importance. We are here to support you as you return to attend or teach face-to-face classes, resume your research, or work on campus in a safe and effective manner.
With the beginning of the fall semester and the resumption of in-person classes comes a sense of excitement as well as probably some nervousness. Here are some things each of us should consider as we come to campus:
- Know the symptoms of COVID-19 and complete a daily health assessment. If you are sick, stay at home.
- Effective August 25, 2021: by order of the Provincial Health Officer, masks are required to be worn on campus in all indoor public areas on campus including lobbies, hallways, stairwells, elevators, classrooms, labs as well as within the Library, Bookstore and Northern Sport Centre.
- Wash your hands regularly.
- If you are not yet vaccinated, create a plan to receive your COVID-19 vaccination if you are able to do so. You can book your first and second doses via the Immunize B.C. website. Drop-ins are also welcome at most Northern Health clinics.
