26 November, 2021

A message from Shelley Kayfish, Director, Campus Operations and Risk Management, Co-chair, UBC Okanagan Resumption Planning and Coordination Committee; and Prof. Michael Burgess, Associate Provost, Strategy, UBC Okanagan, Professor and Chair in Biomedical Ethics, School of Population and Public Health, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Co-chair, UBC Okanagan Resumption Planning and Coordination Committee

This regular Global email is sent to faculty and staff at UBC Okanagan to highlight institutional information pertaining to campus resumption, and to provide updates that are specific to the successful, safe return of the UBC Okanagan campus community.

Dear colleagues,

You likely noticed that, while this is the 12th edition of our resumption update, we did not distribute a communication at the end of October. As we move into the winter season after a successful resumption to campus during the fall, we will share plans as needed, rather than on a set schedule.

Today’s update will focus on event planning and improved guidance on when and how to submit safe event plans.

As always, if you have questions that are specific to the pandemic, resumption planning or health and safety on campus, you can contact We further encourage you to check the UBC Okanagan COVID-19 website regularly as we make every effort to post the latest information as it becomes available.
