Camosun College and COVID-19 – information for students and employees

  • VP Education letter about student programming and COVID-19

Camosun College is committed to providing clarity to students and the entire college community on how it is responding to COVID-19 concerns. However, it is important to bear in mind that information about COVID-19 is fast-changing, and this can mean that circumstances can change as quickly as information is received.

We want to be sure that everyone involved understands that it is each individual’s responsibility to stay home if they are sick and monitor their symptoms (fever, cough, muscle aches, difficulty breathing). This also means that we should be able to ask others if they are at risk for the COVID-19 virus.

We understand the need to provide an environment where students can, as necessary, stay away from class without being unreasonably impacted. As we navigate the emerging information about COVID-19, the college commits that students will not be negatively impacted where exams are scheduled or assignments are due. Both timelines will be adjusted to reasonably support students.

Effective immediately, we are waiving the requirement for a doctor’s note for students and employees who are self-isolating. In such cases, you are required to let your supervisor or school know.

Self-isolation is recommended for individuals who have returned from regions with travel health notices or have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Check the BC Centre for Disease Control website for the most current information for travellers.

Should you develop symptoms during the 14-day isolation period, it is recommended you contact your health-care provider or 8-1-1.

Students or employees who have returned from other international travel should monitor themselves daily for symptoms (fever, cough, muscle aches, difficulty breathing) for 14 days after travel. They do not need to self-isolate.

Information on how you can self-isolate and avoid contact with others is available on the BC Centre for Disease Control website or the Public Health Agency of Canada website.
