To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure a safe environment for individuals in our university community, we are requiring all students, faculty and staff to declare their vaccination status. Proof of vaccination is not required to complete the process, only your TRU login information.
Please answer honestly as the gathering of this information will help TRU understand the overall safety of our campus community as it relates to mitigating the risk of COVID-19.
You will be asked “What is your current COVID-19 vaccination status?” and given four options:
- I am fully vaccinated
- I am partially vaccinated
- I am not vaccinated
- I prefer not to answer
You must choose one of four options and submit one answer to declare your vaccination status. If you do not, access to some online services on myTRU.tru.ca or TRUemployee.tru.ca will be limited until you provide an answer beginning on Wednesday, September 15.
Our Open Learning community has been included because, as members of our TRU community, we care about their health and safety and encourage them to be vaccinated no matter where they call home. While online services on myTRU.tru.ca or TRUemployee.tru.ca for our OL community will not be limited for those who do not complete the declaration, we will send reminders about the value of vaccinations and where to get tested to all those who don’t declare as fully vaccinated.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe.
Privacy and confidentiality
TRU collects, uses, and discloses personal information in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The vaccine declaration process is highly confidential and protected through multiple levels of security. TRU is collecting this information regarding our community’s vaccination status to plan measures that may be required to limit the spread of COVID-19, to plan vaccination and testing clinics and to send email notifications to members of our community who are not fully vaccinated. Data will only be shared in an aggregate form, meaning individual responses will be secured and your privacy protected in accordance with TRU’s Privacy Statement.
