Make yourself a plan that includes staying connected, eating healthfully, exercising regularly, following routines, getting plenty of rest, and reaching out for help if you need it.
The Canadian government announced quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated travellers began to ease starting July 5, 2021. If you are traveling to Canada and meet the eligibility requirements, you will not need to quarantine.
However, it is critically important that you note the following:
Even if you anticipate qualifying for the fully vaccinated quarantine exemption, the Government of Canada still requires that you have a quarantine plan. As per the government’s travel website, everybody needs a plan “in case you don’t get the exemption.”
As per our COVID-19 Residence Rules, residents in UBC Student Housing are not permitted to quarantine (or self-isolate) in a shared living environment. In other words, if you live in or are moving into a shared suite, that cannot be your quarantine plan. If you are moving into a room (single, connected-single, shared) in Orchard Commons, Place Vanier or Totem Park, that cannot be your quarantine plan.
Travellers who are not fully vaccinated must continue to follow quarantine requirements. Be sure to review UBC’s Travelling to Canada Guide before making travel plans.
