Please note the following COVID-19 update for April 8, 2022:
Changes to COVID-19 Restrictions:
Effective April 8, 2022, at 12:01 a.m., the following changes have been made to public health orders:
· Showing the BC Vaccine Card proof of vaccination to access non-essential events, services and businesses will no longer be required. Individual businesses and organizations can choose to continue to require the BC Vaccine Card proof on their premises.
· The Workplace Safety Order has expired, meaning businesses can transition back to communicable disease plans to reduce risk of all communicable disease. Learn more from WorkSafeBC. Post-secondary institutions must continue to maintain their communicable disease safety plan(s).
· The requirement for students residing in on-campus housing to be fully vaccinated under the Post-secondary Institution Housing COVID-19 Preventative Measures Order is also repealed.
COVID-19 Return-to-Campus Guidelines (RTCG):
An update to the RTCG will be provided in a future communiqué that outlines changes based on current public health guidance and pandemic conditions.
Thank you for the important role you play in supporting the provincial COVID-19 response. Please share this update broadly within your respective institutions.
