Preventing the spread of communicable diseases on campus
For fall 2021 CapU is moving from highly prescriptive COVID-19 specific orders and protocols back to normal health and safety policies and guidelines.
The university is following the guidance and direction of the BC Restart Plan, the BC Post-Secondary Institutions’ COVID-19 Return to Campus Guidelines and the WSBC Communicable Disease Prevention Guide for Employers.
For our campus community, the University has created the CapU Exposure Control Plan for Communicable Diseases.
Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility
We can all contribute personally and professionally by
- getting vaccinated (as we are able),
- following campus safety plans,
- performing a daily self health check,
- staying home when sick,
- wearing masks when recommended or required,
- following handwashing and hygiene etiquette, and
- following public health guidance both on and off campus.
It is up to each one of us to do our part; it is our collective efforts that will make the difference. This is the time to be kind, to be calm, and to be safe.
