There was more good news that the pandemic will soon be behind us. On Monday, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry advised BC's post-secondary schools to plan to have students back on campus in the fall.
The province hopes to provide clear guidance over the next few weeks, enabling post-secondary institutions such as Royal Roads University, Camosun College and the University of Victoria to work with Island Health and WorkSafeBC on detailed safety plans.
"There are still lots of unknowns, and many of you will have questions," UVic President and Vice-Chancellor Kevin Hall said in a statement. "We'll do our best to keep everyone updated over the coming weeks and months while building flexibility into our planning. When the final fall timetable goes live in May it will indicate how courses will be delivered and registration will begin in June as usual."
