B.C. Government Update on Province-wide Restrictions

In response to the recent Public Health Orders, the BC Government has released the following information:

“By order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), all events and social gatherings are suspended to significantly reduce COVID-19 transmission related to social interactions and travel. The order is in effect from November 19, 2020 at midnight to January 8, 2021 at midnight.”

This is an extension of the previous orders released verbally on November 7, 2020 for the lower mainland, and then province-wide on November 19, 2020. This order affects the UBC Point Grey, Robson Square, Okanagan campuses and off-campus UBC sites within British Columbia.

A reminder to Supervisors & Managers: Please ensure employees are completing their daily self-assessments for symptoms of COVID-19 before attending work:
