COVID-19 impact scale
The SFU COVID-19 impact scale identifies four distinct recovery phases, extreme, high, moderate and low, that will aid in the recovery planning and implementation as the university responds to the external decisions and indicators to either loosen or tighten the operations in an orderly and coordinated way.
SFU COVID-19 impact scale levels
|Teaching1||In-person teaching without restrictions to class sizes

1 - Decisions on teaching will usually apply to an entire academic term and may be made months in advance. A reduction in impact scale during an academic term may therefore not lead to any changes in teaching activities on campus.
2 - Please refer to guidance documents on Fieldwork/Third-Party Sites and HPR.
3 - All international travel and activities at all levels will need to follow Government of Canada travel advice and advisories and BC Provincial Health guidelines including isolation requirements.
