Public health orders do not require face coverings in public spaces. The use of face coverings is a personal choice. More detailed information about various types of masks and how to use them is available on the BCCDC website.
Medical Health Officers can place local public health orders or recommendations for additional prevention measures beyond this guidance for post-secondary institutions within their regional health authority. These are placed at their own discretion, based on their authority under provincial legislation. These may be put in place during times of increased community transmission of COVID-19, and within communities with low vaccination uptake. They are based on local epidemiology and are proportional to risk.
Stigma affects us all. It creates fear or anger towards people instead of the virus. There are actions you can take to reduce stigma:
To learn more about stigma please review the COVID-19 Stigma Guide [PDF].
CMTN does not tolerate racism connected to the COVID-19. Racist behavior will not be tolerated, in keeping with our existing policies.

Proof of vaccination may be required in off-campus activities:
The amount of time that you need to self-isolate depends on your vaccination status and age.
You are well enough to return to regular activities if you do not have new or worsening symptoms, if symptoms are improving or are being managed, and if your fever has cleared without medication.
All types of masks help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 when they fit comfortably over the mouth and nose with no gaps around the face. Your face is uniquely yours! Wear the mask that works best for you.
If you do not have a mask when you arrive to campus and prefer to wear one, you can obtain one for your use at front offices near campus entry points and spaces such as the library.
