Be part of creating and maintaining a healthy campus environment
Daily self health checks
All students, employees and visitors are asked to monitor their own health on a daily basis and stay home if they are feeling unwell.
There is no requirement at this time to record your daily self health check status prior to coming on campus or attend University events. Daily self health checks will be monitored and recorded only where and when required by industry-specific guidance or provincial/medical order.
The BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool will help guide you through your daily self health checks.
After completing a daily self health check, any student, employee or visitor who finds themselves feeling ill:
- are encouraged not come on campus or attend any University events in person
- CapU staff, exempt employees and admin must inform their supervisor by logging their sick-day into PurelyHR
- Faculty must inform their DS or program coordinator when they are sick
- Students must inform their instructor by email
