    What you need to know

    If you think you may have COVID-19, isolate yourself at home and visit the BC government's self-assessment tool or call 8-1-1.

    Emily Carr University's top priority is the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty. The university's senior leadership team continues to meet daily to evaluate and respond to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak.

    There are still no known cases of COVID-19 among our students, staff and faculty. It is important, however, that we continue to reinforce physical distancing measures to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of COVID-19 in the broader community.

    In response to this unprecedented situation, Emily Carr University has implemented the following measures, which are aligned with advice from public health authorities:

    • All campus facilities are closed and access to the building is restricted.
    • All in-person services are suspended, although many are available online.
    • In-person instruction was suspended beginning Monday, March 16, and faculty are working with students to complete the term online.
    • All university events have been cancelled. This includes convocation and the grad exhibition, although we are exploring alternative options.
    • ECU employees are working remotely wherever possible. All non-essential university travel is suspended.

    These measures will be in place until April 12, 2020, at minimum, and there is a strong possibility they may be extended.

    We recognize that this is a challenging and uncertain time for everyone. We would like to thank the university community for their patience and cooperation as we all work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.
