UBC TSC – Coming back to campus for the first time in a while? Here are some tips!

Welcome back! 

It’s been a crazy start to the 2020-21 school year with classes online and lots of COVID-19 guidelines to follow. Some of our teams are finally starting to practice again, and if that includes your team and you’re coming back to campus for the first time here are some tips for you!


Masks are mandatory!

Effective as of September 16th, all UBC students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to wear non-medical mask when they are indoors on campus. This mandatory mask rule falls under the COVID-19 Campus Rules, which should be followed by all students, faculty, staff and visitors. This includes all of our TSC programs and events, so practices, training & eventually competitions. Even when wearing a mask, remember to observe physical distancing to keep yourself and others safe!
