In-person learning returns next month! The excellent work to keep students engaged and striving for excellence in their post-secondary pursuits during COVID-19 is commendable. Thank you for the work being done today to ensure our students and employees return to safe and healthy learning environments.
A Safe Return to Campus for Fall 2021
Selkirk College is initiating a gradual return to in-person operations. Institutional planning for the Selkirk College Restart Plan has been aligned with the BC Restart Plan and will continue to be informed by guidance through the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training. The current Return to Campus Guidelines approved by the Provincial Health Officer remain in effect today.
The COVID-19 Return-to-Campus Guidelines provide updated public health guidance to support the full return to in-person education, research and on-campus services for B.C.’s post-secondary institutions. The RTC Guidelines were developed by a team of experts from B.C.’s post-secondary sector, the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, regional health authorities and the BC Centre for Disease Control. The RTC Guidelines replaces both the interim Return-to-Campus Primer and the previous COVID-19 Go-Forward Guidelines for B.C.’s Post-Secondary Sector.
The BC Centre for Disease Control also issued Return to Campus Public Health Guidance on September 1 which outline the prevention measures recommended by public health for post-secondary institutions in B.C. to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It aligns with, and is complementary to, the RTC Guidelines.
