COVID-19 Mask update:
UBC is implementing a new measure to help limit COVID-19. Effective Wednesday, September 16, 2020, UBC students, faculty, staff and visitors will be required to wear non-medical masks, when indoors on our campuses. This amends the previous policy which strongly recommended the use of non-medical masks in these settings.

The requirement for the use of non-medical masks applies to shared indoor spaces within UBC buildings, such as hallways, stairways, building entryways, washrooms and study spaces, classrooms, common areas in residences and other high-traffic areas.

This new measure is required in all UBC Botanical Garden’s indoor facilities including our washrooms, Shop in the Garden, Administration building, and all other indoor spaces.

Exceptions will be provided for people with underlying medical conditions that inhibit their ability to wear masks. Further details related to the policy, its implementation, exceptions, and COVID-19 Safety Plans will be posted at
