Health + Safety

Updated Feb 2023

The health and safety of the ECU community is our highest priority. With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the end of mandatory masking in BC, there are still ways to keep each other protected on campus.

Our ECU COVID-19 Safety Plan was developed in August 2020, and transitioned to a Communicable Disease Prevention Plan (CDPP). Read it here.

It covers the safe work procedures that have been developed and implemented on campus to protect everyone, including physical distancing, occupancy limits, frequent cleaning, and additional hand hygiene stations.

Below, we have important links and key points about health + safety. Read on to learn how we’re keeping you safe.
