COVID-19 feature


The COVID-19 feature within the UBC Safe Vancouver app is a tool for campus users to access and conduct their daily health assessment. Upon completion of the self-assessment tool, campus users will receive a green badge that is valid for 24-hrs to confirm that they have completed their daily self-assessment.

As part of the latest Public Health Order, all students, faculty, staff, and visitors must complete their daily self-health assessment before attending campus before.

For more information on UBC Campus Rules, please visit the section ‘COVID-19.


WorkAlone Feature

The WorkAlone feature within the UBC Safe app is a tool for graduate students, faculty, and staff who are working alone or in isolation on UBC Vancouver Campus. The WorkAlone feature is a convenient tool and offers a robust system that would allow individuals to regularly check-in with their emergency contact to indicate their safety and where required, trigger an escalation to locate the individual’s whereabouts.
