A message from Santa J. Ono, President and Vice-Chancellor
As you know, UBC is requiring COVID-19 rapid testing for all students, faculty and staff, with exemptions provided for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Starting today, September 7, all students, faculty and staff must complete an online, confidential declaration of your vaccination status. As part of the process, you are asked to disclose your vaccination status as follows:
- Visit https://rapidtesting.covid19.ubc.ca, log in to the disclosure site and complete the process as outlined. It includes questions about your COVID-19 vaccination status. Please note: you will require your CWL.
- If you indicate that you are fully vaccinated, you will receive further communication outlining how to verify your vaccination status with the appropriate documentation.
- If you indicate that you are not fully vaccinated, or you choose not to disclose your status, you will receive further communication about UBC’s Rapid Testing Program and the next steps you need to follow.
All UBC students, faculty and staff are asked to complete the Vaccination Status Declaration by September 10, 2021. A series of FAQs have been posted to help answer any questions you may have about the program.
