Enhanced measures for a safe return to campus

Vaccinations and rapid testing

Release date:

Tag(s): Current Students, Employees, News & Announcements

Capilano University, along with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training (AEST), the Provincial Health Office (PHO) and members of the British Columbia Association of Institutes and Universities, are working together toward offering additional measures for educational activities beyond those covered by the provincial proof of vaccine program, including rapid testing for our community members who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19, or who choose not to disclose their vaccine status.

Since the AEST and PHO announcements earlier this week, we know that many students and employees have called for enhanced safety measures to facilitate returning to campus. We are confident these additional measures will augment the already high numbers who have been vaccinated.

Discussions regarding implementation of these enhanced measures will involve the Province, public health authorities, CapU administration, the Capilano Faculty Association, MoveUp and the Capilano Students' Union. As details and updates are confirmed, we will communicate them to you.

In the meantime, we encourage everyone who is able to get vaccinated to do so at the first available opportunity.

Thank you for doing your part to bring our campus community safely back together in-person this fall.
