COVID-19 Safety on Campus

We look forward to welcoming students, faculty and staff back in January for on-campus teaching, learning and research, supported by measures to keep everyone safe.

TRU and other BC post-secondary institutions (PSI) continue to be guided by our provincial health experts who, on Dec. 21, 2021, strongly recommended the continuation of on-campus instructions for BC PSIs. If the Provincial Health Office’s health and safety guidance changes, we will update on this site and on social media.

As a reminder, we each have shared responsibilities to keep our campus community safe. Vaccines are the most effective way to reduce the risk of COVID-19 on campus. As such, we expect everyone, as able, will get vaccinated. It’s how we will get back to a normal campus life.
