Quest is returning to in-person teaching, learning, and living for Fall 2021.

Read the detailed Quest University Communicable Disease Plan.

On March 8, 2021, B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, advised post-secondary institutions to begin planning for a full return to on-campus teaching, learning and research in September 2021. It is very important for everyone’s health and well-being to get back on campus. Dr. Henry expressed deep confidence that the combination of mass immunization contributing to community immunity, the application of revised health and safety protocols, and the regular review and updating of multilayered institutional safety plans will support the safe resumption of on-campus activities.

Quest’s top priorities remain ensuring a high-quality academic and student experience and safeguarding the health and wellness of our community members.

Following the COVID-19 Go-Forward Guidelines for B.C.’s Post-Secondary Sector and the COVID-19 Return to Campus Primer provided by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Training; consultation with local public health officials; and dialogue with our Quest community, Quest has designed prevention and response measures to support the re-opening of campus residences and the gradual increase of in-person teaching, learning, and administrative and support services.

Flexibility and adaptability based on scientific evidence and epidemiology to manage the COVID-19 virus will continue to be important as Quest returns to on-campus activities. Quest will continue to demonstrate flexibility. We will be responsive to the needs of those students who may face barriers to returning to campus and we will continue to adapt our planning to align with the evolving COVID-19 public health information and direction.

The COVID-19 Safety Plan is a detailed and living document outlining Quest’s COVID-19 health and safety measures and plans.
