Mask guidelines

At SFU we encourage mask use on our campuses and particularly in spaces where we are in close proximity. Please be understanding and compassionate of people’s individual circumstances and individual choices about masks as we continue to cultivate a community of care.

Many members of our community will continue to prefer to wear masks in indoor spaces.

Wearing a mask

Masks are no longer required in indoor public spaces across the province and are a matter of personal choice, unless further public health orders are made. SFU encourages mask use on our campuses, particularly in spaces where people are in close proximity.  

Be kind and respect preferences

Many members of our community will continue to prefer to wear masks in indoor spaces. Please be understanding and compassionate of people’s individual circumstances and individual choices.

Where to get masks on campuses

Community members can pick up masks at the security desks in Vancouver and Surrey.

We also encourage all faculties and departments to make disposable masks available for anyone who needs them. Disposable masks can be ordered for a faculty or department through Central Stores.

RECYCLE YOUR MASK

You can recycle your used facemask at any SFU campus. Learn more about the mask recycling program and find a receptacle near you.

How to effectively wear a mask

Masks should cover both your nose and mouth and are most effective when worn properly. Visit the BC CDC website to learn more.
