Return to campus guide - employees

In order to continue limiting the spread of COVID-19, staff and faculty will continue to work primarily remotely where and when possible.

If you must return to a UFV campus, please know UFV is committed to three key themes for this fall:

  1. Health — your health and safety are UFV’s number one priority and the University will adhere to all Public Health Officer and BC Government recommendations.
  2. Quality — we will provide an excellent workplace environment and a high quality educational experience for students. Here are eight ways UFV is keeping students safe this fall.
  3. Certainty — you will have certainty about how to safely attend campus and how education and services will be delivered.

To keep these promises, we need your help.

Steps for employees returning to campus:


Notify your supervisor

Let your supervisor know of your interest in returning to campus to work.


Contribute to your Workspace Safety Plan

You and your supervisor will develop a Workspace Safety Plan designed to keep you and the UFV community safe. Supervisors will find materials needed to complete this step on the Steps for area supervisors page.


Complete your UFV COVID-19 Safety Orientation

Complete the UFV COVID-19 Safety Orientation. This training module provides an overview of UFV’s overarching Exposure Control Plan and general safe work procedures.

You’ll receive a certificate indicating you have completed the orientation. Please send this to your supervisor via email before you return to UFV.

To access the Safety Orientation:

  • Log into MyClass using your employee ID number and your UFV email password
  • Click on the 'Courses' tab, then search for 'COVID'
  • Choose the employee orientation and click on +Enroll on the far left

Go to MyClass 


If you have difficulty accessing the training, see the Safety orientation for employees how-to guide.


Review Workspace Safety protocols

Once you receive approval from your supervisor, return to campus and review the Workspace Safety plan with your supervisor.


Return to work

As you return to work, be sure to follow the process and protocols outlined in the Workspace Safety plan.
