13 October, 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.
This is the 11th edition of our resumption update and we continue to make progress in our return plans. One of the recent endeavours includes the recent addition of student health ambassadors, distinguished by their blue shirts. If you see them on campus, be sure to say hello and thank them for their hard work. They, like all of you, are part of how we continue to move forward to a full return to campus, thanks to increasing numbers of fully vaccinated students, faculty and staff, as well as adherence to daily safety testing and rapid testing if needed.
As always, if you have questions that are specific to the pandemic, resumption planning or health and safety on campus, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
