Wear your non-medical mask.
The BC Provincial Health Officer, Dr Bonnie Henry, announced that the Public Health Order requiring masks to be worn in public indoor spaces is lifted as of March 11, 2022. You can read more at https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2022HLTH0081-000324.
The latest changes indicate that while face coverings will be optional for people in all indoor public settings, individual organizations can choose to continue to require mask wearing on their premises. As such, UBC Sauder will continue with the current approach, requiring masks to be worn in public indoor spaces on both campuses, until the end of the 2021/22 Winter Session on April 30, 2022.

About the BC Vaccine Card
The BC provincial government announced the introduction of the BC Vaccine Card by order from the provincial health officer, effective September 13, 2021. The order currently requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination to access a range of activities, including indoor ticketed sporting events, indoor and patio dining in restaurants, fitness centres, casinos and indoor organized events, such as conferences and weddings. The BC Vaccine Card will not be required after April 8, 2022.
