COVID-19
COMMUNICABLE DISEASE
PREVENTION PLAN

As COVID-19 vaccinations have become widely available to British Columbians and International Students, the overall risk of COVID-19 transmissions and serious consequences has diminished. Despite this, the virus will circulate like other communicable diseases.

Monitoring of staff and students

Camber College staff is conducting daily monitoring of students for visible cold, flu, fever or COVID-19 related symptoms. Camber College may choose to conduct temperature checks at the point of entry. Students are expected to daily self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.

If any symptoms are present, the student or staff member will be asked to return home immediately.

A daily attendance is taken of staff and students which can be provided, if necessary, to clinical authorities for the purpose of contact tracing.

Physical distancing

Camber College has introduced measures that will ensure adherence to physical distancing guidelines, as promoted by the Public Health Agency of Canada and provincial health authorities, both in the classroom and during circulation in the premises.

All classrooms in the college have a limit of 8 students who can be inside at any given time. This applies to classes as well as to all dedicated lunch rooms that are set up.

Sanitization

Strict protocols on cleaning and disinfecting premises and other aspects of environmental health are observed, using hard-surface disinfectants as approved by the Public Health Agency of Canada and following guidelines from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hygiene

Please follow basic hygiene requirements of washing hands and wiping all areas you have touched. While we have a hand-sanitizer station at the College entrance, we encourage you to carry a personal size hand-sanitizer (100ml or less) that you can use throughout the day.

 

Personal protective equipment

We encourage all staff and students to wear a mask inside our campus.

Protecting mental health

Camber College recognizes that staff and students may also be affected by the anxiety and uncertainty created by the COVID-19 outbreak.

We are providing information to students and staff on available resources specific to supporting mental health in a time of pandemic, such as those provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Wellness Together Canada portal and other resources available from provincial health authorities.

We are maintaining regular communication/check-in with students and staff on mandatory self-isolation.

Promotion of reliable, accurate messages about COVID-19 related stigma and anti-racism supports

Camber College will ensure that students receive accurate and up-to-date messaging regarding COVID-19 as part of orientation, during quarantine, and at any other time during their studies, as appropriate.

Camber College will include information about COVID-19 related stigma and provide anti-racism support to all students, both as part of the orientation for students and on an ongoing as-needed basis.
