In April, UBC announced it was requiring masks to be worn in indoor public spaces until June 30, 2022. This decision was in support of our students, faculty and staff, as we continued to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and the Omicron variant.
Since that time, public health data has indicated that BC has passed the 6th wave of the pandemic. After consulting with internal stakeholders, and consistent with the position of the BC Provincial Health Officer, the university has made the decision to no longer require masks in public indoor spaces on campus after June 30.
