As you may recall, in early March the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training (AEST) announced that Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, was advising the presidents of all public post-secondary institutions to prepare for a full return to on-campus education this September.
Since this time, BCIT has been working with our numerous Institute partners to ensure that we prepare for fall return-to-campus learning in a safe and controlled manner.
Today, AEST released this information bulletin sharing the COVID-19 Return-to-Campus Primer that outlines the next steps in planning for a Fall return to post-secondary campuses throughout British Columbia.
We understand there may be many questions about this in the coming months. Building on our success of safely returning activity to campus in a graduated manner, we will continue to work with AEST on the updated Go-Forward Guidelines and Safety Plans.
Director, Safety, Security and Emergency Management
