This week, Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, informed B.C. post-secondary institutions they can plan for a return to on-campus activity this fall.
The news follows the government’s work to increase vaccinations so all eligible British Columbians are expected to have access to COVID-19 vaccinations this summer.
Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s welcomes this announcement and we are well-positioned to return to campus in September.
The prospect of returning to campus is exciting and the return will be undertaken cautiously and safely. At every step, we will be working under the guidance of Dr. Henry and government direction to ensure the right measures are in place to keep our community safe.
There is much work to do as we prepare for September. We will be sharing updates about our planning and any relevant changes as time unfolds.
Thank you to all our students, faculty and staff for your perseverance as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and its impact on our daily lives. We look forward to seeing familiar faces return, making our campuses vibrant once more. Working together, we are eager to welcome you back.
Dr. Michael W. Higgins
