SFU has introduced a number of layers of protection to keep the community safe on our return this fall. We have put a number of measures in place to protect the health, safety and well-being of the community. We are working closely with our partners in provincial health, and rely on their guidance and deep knowledge of the specific facts of how COVID is transmitting in B.C. to inform our safety planning.
1. Close monitoring
Working with our partners in public health, WorkSafeBC and higher education to monitor, evaluate and respond quickly to changes in the pandemic.
6. Support to stay home when sick
Those experiencing symptoms of illness should not come to campus. SFU is relaxing requirements for doctors’ notes and providing flexibility to work and study from home for those who are experiencing symptoms or need to self-isolate.
7. COVID-19 self-screening
Asking community members to complete provincial health screening before coming to campus via the BC Thrive app.
8. Enhanced cleaning
Conducting enhanced cleaning of high-touch places.
9. Hand hygiene
Installing large-volume hand sanitization stations and educational posters throughout campuses.
10. Management of density
Offering some classes online.
14. Careful social contact
Encouraging people to limit the number of sustained close contacts and to respect personal space.
16. VACCINE DECLARATIONS + RAPID SCREENING
All students, faculty and staff have been asked to submit vaccine declarations. Those who have declared they are not vaccinated or who choose not to disclose their status, are expected to participated in rapid screening.
We are ready to shift measures quickly in response to changes in public health measures to protect the community.
