What do I do if I am sick?Steps to take if coming to campus
As COVID-19 becomes common in our communities, there will be cases on campus. Due to our high rate of vaccination, Island Health does not consider UVic a high-risk setting. Please do a daily health self-assessment before coming to campus. Let your instructor or supervisor know about your absence. UVic students to not need a note as proof of illness, regardless of the length of the illness. If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home and follow public health guidance.
I have to miss class...Short-term absences and accommodations
Your instructors are aware that you may need to miss class due to illness symptoms or self-isolation. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and do not come to class/campus. Medical documentation is not required. If you do have to miss class, contact your instructor as soon as possible. You can also ask classmates for notes and/or access Brightspace to see if your instructor(s) have posted any recordings, slides or other materials. Depending on the length of your absence, you may also ask for a deferral or accommodation. If you are ill and unable to complete your coursework or exam, you may seek information on academic concessions.
