Are there confirmed cases at UNBC?

Do I need to wear a mask?
Wearing a mask is part of a multi-pronged approach to preventing the spread of COVID-19. British Columbia Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has not mandated the use of masks. Rather, she said it is her expectation that people will wear a mask. At UNBC, it s our expectation that members of the University community will wear masks when in public spaces, including our campuses and the Northern Sport Centre.
Who can transmit the illness?
Any people who are experiencing symptoms of this disease may transmit the illness; it is not related to race or ethnicity. We all play a role in dispelling rumours that may lead to discrimination. It is important for people to check authoritative sources for information on coronavirus so that no person is targeted or subjected to discrimination resulting from any misplaced perception that they may be a carrier of a communicable disease based on their perceived race, ancestry or place of origin.
