Coronavirus (COVID-19) and UBC’s response

  • Update: March 26

    Countries around the world, including Canada, are working to contain the current outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

    This website contains useful FAQs and resources for UBC faculty, staff and students. It’s being updated regularly following advice from provincial and federal health agencies.

    Within British Columbia, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, the BC Centre for Disease Control, Ministry of Health and Vancouver Coastal Health are leading the coordinated response to COVID-19. UBC continues to take direction from the BC Provincial Government as we plan and consider next steps.

    We encourage you to visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website for the latest information on:

    • Self-isolating and self-monitoring
    • What to do if you develop symptoms of COVID-19
    • How to self-isolate if you live with others
    • How to prevent the spread of COVID-19
    • What to do if you’re returning from travel outside of Canada 

    The Government of Canada also has an information line that you can call at 1 833 784 4397 to get answers to general questions about COVID-19.
