With the Winter semester in full swing for both online and blended learning, this is a reminder of the important steps BCIT students must take before arriving on campus.
1. Complete the COVID-19 and pandemic online course
This is a mandatory 30-minute online course titled “COVID-19 Pandemic On-Campus Guidelines Training”, available through the Learning Hub in the My Courses section. This short program will help you gain knowledge on safety protocols to protect yourself while studying on campus. Take the COVID-19 pandemic course.
2. Complete your daily self-assessment
Use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool prior to arriving on campus each day to assess for COVID-19 symptoms. Please do not come to campus if you are feeling unwell. Attending school or work with even mild symptoms can threaten the safety of our community.
3. Wear a mask
Masks are required to be worn by everyone in all public indoor settings. This means that BCIT students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask in all common areas on campus. This includes spaces shared by other people, such as study areas, meeting rooms, open offices, cubicles, and stairwells, as well as anywhere physical distancing of 2m may not be possible.
One reusable non-medical mask is available to all staff, faculty, and students at no cost. Masks are available through the Safety, Security and Emergency Management office.
I understand that this is a busy time of year, however we need to ensure we are all following these steps to help keep each other safe. For more information about COVID-19 and on-campus learning, please refer to the BCIT COVID-19 Student page.
Be safe and well,
Director, Safety, Security and Emergency Management
