Student self-assessment

Latest Updates

Before visiting campus

All students attending campus at KPU should complete a daily self-assessment prior to their arrival on campus. Completing the confidential B.C. COVID-19 Self-Assessment tool is the best way to perform this check as it aligns with the latest guidance from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

The self-assessment tool is intended for COVID-19 only and does not replace your health care provider's advice. Your symptoms may not be related to COVID-19 and could require you to seek medical attention. If you need help or guidance in another language, please call 8‑1‑1 which provides translation services in 130 languages.

If you are unable to access the B.C. COVID-19 Self-Assessment tool, you can check your symptoms against those listed on this WorkSafe BC poster.

Please do not attend any KPU site in person if you:

  • Have travelled outside of Canada within the last 14 days
  • Have been identified by Public Health as a close contact of someone with COVID-19
  • Have been told to isolate by Public Health
  • Are displaying any of the following new or worsening symptoms:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Loss of sense of smell or taste
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Sore throat
    • Loss of appetite
    • Extreme fatigue or tiredness
    • Headache
    • Body aches
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • While on campus

    In addition to checking your symptoms prior to attending campus, KPU asks that you monitor your health while on campus and leave if you develop persistent symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Masks

    It is mandatory to wear a non-medical mask in all indoor public spaces on our campuses, including hallways, corridors, washrooms, lounges, atria and study areas, the libraries and the Bookstore. There are exceptions if you are eating or cannot wear a mask for medical reasons.

    Program and department safety plans address the need to wear masks in classrooms and office spaces.  Students and employees are to adhere the approved safety requirements when in those areas.

    KPU asks that you wear a mask when you are outdoors on campus unless you can guarantee that you can stay at least six feet away from others at all times.

  • Employees and contractors

    Employees who are working on campus must complete KPU's online self-assessment form before starting their shifts. If for any reason an employee is unable to access the online tool, they should call Security to confirm that they have met the requirements on this WorkSafe BC poster prior to beginning their shift.

    All contractors working on campus are required to check-in with Security when they arrive on campus each day to confirm that they have met the requirements listed on this WorkSafe BC poster.

  • Safety Plans

    KPU's COVID-19 safety plans use an appropriate mix of the four recommended levels of protection: elimination, engineering controls, administrative controls and personal protective equipment (PPE).

COVID-19 vaccines are saving lives. Vaccines do more than protect the people getting vaccinated, they also protect everyone around them. The more people in a community who are immunized and protected from COVID-19, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone 18+ who lives or works in B.C. You must register to receive an invite to book a vaccine appointment:
