Return to Campus/Research Requirements
In consultation with Public Health, UBC streamlined the safety planning process to align with the BC Restart Plan and what has been learned about COVID-19 over the past year. Seven Generic COVID-19 Safety Plans have been created. They can be found here. They are based on work activities, so simply choose the plan(s) that suits your work situation(s). Unlike previous COVID-19 Safety Plans, the new plans do not require submission and approval.
The Province has also now released the new “Go Forward Guidelines” for the fall which can be found here.
There is new mandatory training that staff, faculty and students are required to complete. Visitors are also required to complete this training. It is available here and on our MINE SAFETY ONLINE WORKSHOP. While staff, faculty and students may have completed the “Preventing COVID transmission in the workplace” training in the past, they need to complete this 2nd replacement training to support our journey back to campus in these new conditions.
Daily self-administered health checks are a personal responsibility for all people prior to accessing campus. Plan on staying home if you are sick.
Non-medical masks may be recommended by public health in some circumstances, depending on local COVID-19 transmission rates. Follow the advice of the PHO.
