Updates for faculty, staff and students:
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we will keep up-to-date information pertaining to the DMCBH community on our website.
Currently, we have adopted a streamlined COVID-19 Safety Plan, and are following UBC’s COVID-19 Campus Rules.
We strongly recommend that all UBC community members get vaccinated before returning to campus, for those who are able. In BC, vaccines are available to everyone aged 12 and older, including incoming international students who can receive their vaccinations after arriving in Canada. You can learn more at https://immunizebc.ca. UBC is also requiring COVID-19 rapid testing for all students, faculty and staff, with exemptions provided for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Effective September 7, all students, faculty and staff must complete an online, confidential declaration of their vaccination status.
British Columbia’s coordinated response
Within British Columbia, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, the BC Centre for Disease Control, Ministry of Health and Vancouver Coastal Health are leading the coordinated response to COVID-19. UBC continues to take direction from the BC Provincial Government as we plan and consider next steps.
We also encourage you to visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website for the latest information. The Government of Canada has an information line at 1 833 784 4397.
