Back to Campus Information for Event Planners

Simon Fraser University continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and we are committed to protecting our students, faculty, staff and community. Following the public health orders and guidelines for the Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health regions, SFU is now back on campus.

The most recent information on SFU's return to campus plans can be found on the Return to Campus page. SFU has transitioned from unit-specific safety plans to one university-wide Communicable Disease Plan that includes core public health measures to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.

At this time, wearing masks in public indoor settings is not required by public health, but SFU encourages mask use on our campuses, particularly in spaces where we are in close proximity. Individual businesses and event organizers can choose to continue requiring masks on their premises. Proof of vaccination is required until April 8, 2022. Please refer to the COVID-19 provincial restrictions for details.

Note: All outdoor and indoor organized gatherings require a Safe Work Plan for in-person meetings, events and gatherings organized by Meeting, Event and Conference Services (MECS).

Please view our planning guidelines page for more information about online and in-person events and ceremonies.
