Campus Rules & Safety Training

COVID-19 campus safety rules

To ensure persons in all workspaces and other UBC property remain as safe as possible, it is required that all persons follow these COVID-19 Campus Rules as well as any other rules required of them by UBC.

These COVID-19 Campus Rules govern UBC’s campuses and apply to all activities that take place on UBC Premises and all persons on UBC Premises. For greater certainty, UBC Premises do not include land leased to third parties (for example private residences, third-party commercial spaces).

Put simply, UBC members must:

  1. Assess themselves daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before coming to campus and follow any instructions given to them from Public Health authorities.
  2. Stay home if feeling unwell.
  3. Use the BC Self-Assessment Tool if symptoms present themselves or you come into contact with a person with COVID-19, and follow the instructions provided.
  4. Stay physically distant as much as possible.
  5. Wear a non-medical mask  in common, indoors spaces, as outlined in the relevant COVID-19 Safety Plan
