COVID-19 Update


The following COVID-19 updates for January 13, 2022:
 
Updated BCCDC Mask Information
On January 10, 2022 the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) updated their mask information for the public.  Masks are one of many layers of protection used in post-secondary classrooms and workplaces to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • All types of masks help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 when they fit comfortably over the mouth and nose with no gaps around the face.
  • In healthcare and other workplace settings, respirators (e.g., N95, KN95, or CAN95) are specially fitted to each person, but in public settings this is not needed. 
  • Respirators and medical masks may provide better protection than other masks when worn correctly and consistently.
  • Individuals are advised to choose the mask that is best for them, depending on ability to wear comfortably, affordability, and individual risk.
 
COVID-19 Safety Plan Exemption for Post-secondary Institutions
In a media briefing on January 7, 2022 (see timestamp 6 mins 30 sec) the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) announced that business owners are to implement COVID-19 safety plans that are appropriate for this phase of the pandemic where much of the population is immunized and business continuity is a priority. 
  • Educational settings (K-12 and post-secondary institutions) and healthcare facilities are exempt from this requirement because detailed COVID-19 protocols have already been developed to address COVID-19 related risks, in close collaboration with staff from the PHO.
  • A new PHO order on workplace safety is currently under development and will provide written confirmation of this exemption.
 
The Ministry is working with the BCCDC and the PHO to update the COVID-19 Return to Campus Guidelines to reflect these updates.
Thank you for the important role you play in supporting the provincial COVID-19 response.  Please share this update broadly within your respective institutions.

The following COVID-19 update for January 7, 2022:
 

Learning and Business Continuity for Post-secondary Institutions
Public health in BC continues to strongly recommend the continuation of on-campus instruction for post-secondary institutions (PSIs) starting January 10, 2022 as outlined in the Provincial Health Officer’s recommendations.
             
  • Evidence to date indicates that BC’s PSIs are low-risk settings for the transmission of COVID-19 due to:
    • High vaccination rates;
    • Sector wide health and safety protocols; and,
    • High compliance with Provincial Health Officer orders, including the requirement for masks in all post-secondary classrooms and workplaces.
  • In-person learning is critical to alleviating the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on young adults in British Columbia as documented by the BCCDC COVID-19 Young Adult Task Force, including significantly worsening mental health.
  • As part of a long term, sustainable approach to managing COVID-19, PSIs need contingency plans in place to support learning continuity for students as well as operational continuity during short-term business disruptions resulting from students, faculty or staff becoming ill due to COVID-19, as per direction from BC’s Provincial Health Officer.  Institutions should reference the COVID-19 Return-to-Campus Guidelines and the COVID-19 resources noted below to review and update their existing business continuity plans.
 
Thank you for the important role you play in supporting the provincial COVID-19 response.  Please share this update broadly within your respective institutions.
