Will in-person classes still happen if some people don’t get vaccinated?
Yes. The BC Provincial Health Officer has provided guidance that UBC should be confident that a return to on-campus instruction can be undertaken safely and successfully. The university offered some in-person teaching throughout the 2020/21 academic year and we have strong protocols to ensure we can pursue academic activities safely. We will continue to follow the advice of the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC as we move forward in planning for the fall. With more in-person activity, we should also expect to continue to support our community by maintaining some of the public health and social measures that we have become familiar with and responsible for over this past year.
