COVID-19 Update 4

The CNC community has done very well in managing the on-going COVID-19 pandemic through the fall term. As the terms wraps up and we head into 2022, we wish to share information with students and employees to promote on-going health and safety.

What we are doing now, and how you can help:

Omicron variant

we continue to monitor developments on the Omicron variant. There are no changes to CNC’s safety plans related to Omicron. We will provide new information impacting CNC students and employees, based on public health guidance.

Regional health orders

special orders for the Northern Health region remain in effect. These are available at https://www.northernhealth.ca/health-topics/covid-19-orders or see page two.

Mask use at CNC:>

Mask use is required in all indoor public spaces at CNC, including classrooms. Instructors or anyone presenting to the class may remove their masks when instructing or presenting if they are physically distanced from closest individual.

Vaccination for COVID-19

Registration and appointment booking for the COVID-19 vaccine are still available. We encourage CNC employees to speak with their primary care provider and seek trusted sources of information about specific interventions and their personal health. You can register at https://www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/ or by calling 1-833-838-2323.

Celebratory events

while we want to celebrate the holiday season, we must continue to follow the public health orders intended to keep us safe. Here is how to hold celebratory events and comply with public health orders. These rules apply for CNC on-campus events only:
  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell or experiencing any of these symptoms: fever or chills, cough, loss of smell/taste, and/or difficulty breathing. This applies even if you’ve been previously vaccinated.
  • All people attending the celebratory event (aged 12 and older) must be fully vaccinated and must show proof of vaccination.
  • Indoor events are limited to 50 percent of the seated capacity of the space. The size of facility must be large enough to comfortably accommodate those attending.
  • Masks are required to be worn unless eating and/or drinking, and participants must be seated while their mask is off.
  • Hand sanitizer must be available if food and drinks are being consumed.

Monitoring one's health

We ask students and employees to continue to monitor their health every day before coming to a CNC campus.  Please do not come to campus if you are sick. If you have symptoms including a new fever or cough, you should also self-isolate and seek medical advice as soon as possible.
