What We're Doing
UBC is regularly receiving and proactively responding to updated information from the Provincial Medical Health Office, BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), BC Ministry of Health and Interior Health. We continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We encourage you to stay up-to-date through ubc.ca, and continue to practice social distancing.
As always, safety and security remain our highest priorities. In response to COVID-19, UBC Food Services has taken the following additional precautions:
Increased frequency of cleaning in high-touch areas, including POS screens
Hand sanitizer stations are available in all major locations
Staff are reminded to wash their hands frequently and with proper hand-washing techniques
Staff are asked to stay home if they are ill or have flu symptoms
What Else You Can do:
COVID-19 is transmitted through contaminated droplets spread by coughing or sneezing, or by contact with contaminated hands, surfaces or objects. Here’s how our guests can help preventing the spread of COVID-19:
Wash your hands frequently for 20-30 seconds using soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Abstain from touching your eyes, nose, and/or mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
Sneeze or cough by covering your mouth and nose with the crease of your elbow, then wash your hands
Stay home when you are ill, or if you have flu-like symptoms like a fever or cough.
Bigger spaces, fewer faces. Keep your hang-outs small, and give space to people outside your bubble.
