PETITION:

CONSIDERING,

  • BC remains in the midst of the fourth wave of a global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus and its variants,
  • Public and private Post-Secondary Institutions across British Columbia represent significant community gathering places for tens of thousands of workers, students, and community members,
  • Cases of COVID-19 are occurring on campuses across the province,
  • A lack of official information has led to uncertainty, misinformation and added stress in an already difficult time,
  • The K-12 Sector recently improved its exposure notification after similar concerns were raised,


We the undersigned faculty, students, staff, and community members of post-secondary institutions as well as concerned citizens and organizations call upon the Government of BC, the Ministry of Advanced Education, and BC Public Health Office to,

  1. Post notifications of any COVID 19 exposure, cluster, or outbreak event occurring on a post-secondary campus on the local Health Authority website as soon as possible,
  2. Work with post-secondary institutions to provide regular and timely notification of COVID-19 exposures, clusters, and outbreaks directly to all institutional community members while ensuring the privacy of any individual,
  3. Provide consistent procedures for all faculty, staff and students to notify their classes, colleagues, and fellow students of potential exposures, clusters, or outbreaks in their classrooms and workplaces.
