Planning is underway to support a safe, equitable and supportive return to campus this September. A four-stage plan will guide our approach and consider factors including rate of community transmission, rate of vaccination and public health orders. The four-stage plan outlines broad guidelines, such as campus density, services available, and on-campus learning and research activities, and gives flexibility for input and decision-making to come from faculties and units who understand their work and needs best.

The province of B.C. has issued a Return-to-Campus Primer, which provides interim, high-level guidance to support planning for the return of faculty and staff throughout the summer and for campus safety plan updates. The full Go-Forward Guidelines are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
The SFU GoForwardPlan has been updated with new information relating to non-medical masks, and resources added around proper face mask usage. Additionally, we’ve revised the COVID-19 'Building Access/Public Areas' column to specify restrictions related to department controlled spaces.
