TRU recognizes many individuals within our university community have questions regarding COVID-19 (formerly known as novel coronavirus).

The university is monitoring the situation and reviewing the most up-to-date information and recommendations available through regional and provincial medical health officers. For the latest information in British Columbia, visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website.

Refer to the student, employee and health & safety frequently asked questions about COVID-19, which we will update as new information is available; check for updates regularly.

We encourage you to seek information from reliable sources, namely health agencies.

Stop the spread of viruses

  • Clean your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand cleanser.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Throw tissues away immediately.
  • No tissue? Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
  • Avoid touching your face.

Handwashing with soap and water

Remove jewelry
Wet hands with warm water, add soap to palms and rub hands together to create lather.
Thoroughly cover all surfaces
of your hands and fingers with lather and work fingertips into palms to clean under nails.
Rinse hands well
under warm running water.
Dry with a single-use towel
and then use towel to turn off the tap

Hands should be washed for a minimum of 20 to 30 seconds. To help children wash along, say the ABCs or sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
