Safety Plan, Outbreak Response, and Quarantine Information
Following WorkSafeBC’s guidelines on planning for COVID-19 preparedness, and in accordance with the BC Restart Plan and Go-Forward Guidelines, a review has been conducted of risks of exposure or transmission at the school. We have developed and implemented protective measures and policies to mitigate those risks.
We’ve also developed a robust case management and outbreak response plan that is initiated in the event any suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 is reported within the VanArts community.
For international students travelling to Canada, any family accompanying them, or anyone returning to Canada from abroad, it is required they quarantine/self-isolate for 14 days immediately upon arrival to Canada in order to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission. This requirement is enforceable by emergency orders under the Quarantine Act.
