Communicable Disease Plan now available

- University of Victoria

UVic’s new campus-wide Communicable Disease (CD) Plan is now available, following the recent release of the provincial COVID-19 Return-to-Campus Guidelines. The Provincial Health Officer advised businesses and universities to transition from COVID-19-specific safety plans to a new communicable disease plan following guidelines developed by WorkSafeBC.  

The UVic CD Plan is in effect as of July 15, 2021 and replaces all existing COVID-19 safe work plans (SWPs) for campus units and researchers. The CD Plan contains all the required ongoing prevention measures to support a safe and full return to in-person education, research and on-campus services. 

Transitional Safety Guidance is available to assist units and researchers to gradually and safely ease restrictions leading up to the fall and Step 4 of the BC Restart Plan. The Transitional Safety Guidance retains some existing safety measures until the end of summer classes, and building directional signage until the end of July.

Occupational Health, Safety and Environment (OHSE) has key transitional health and safety information and updates available, including guidance and support for event planners and off-campus activities.
