Daily self health checks

All students, employees and visitors are asked to monitor their own health on a daily basis and stay home if they are feeling unwell.

There is no requirement at this time to record your daily self health check status prior to coming on campus or attend University events. Daily self health checks will be monitored and recorded only where and when required by industry-specific guidance or provincial/medical order.

The BC Thrive Health App is a handy tool to guide assist with your daily self health checks.
