With conditions continuing to improve in British Columbia surrounding COVID-19—represented by declining case counts and hospitalizations as well as an increase in vaccination rates—there are many indications pointing to a September that will be closer to a post-pandemic normal.
Protecting the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff and campus visitors continues to be a priority while adapting as conditions change. Preventing the spread of communicable diseases including COVID-19 means everyone is doing their part including immunization, daily self-administered health checks, staying home when sick, wearing masks when recommended by public health and practicing hand hygiene.
Northwest will continue to work with the local BC Medical Health Officer to develop effective infection prevention and exposure control measures as well as COVID-19 case management and response processes.
