Communicable Disease Prevention

Health & Safety 

The health and safety of the TWU community, both students and employees, includes preventing transmission of communicable (contagious) diseases like COVID-19, Measles, Tuberculosis (TB), and others. This work is done in conjunction with Public Health Orders from the Ministry of Health as well as recommendations from BC Centre for Disease Control, WorkSafe BC and other provincial guidelines.

On May 5, 2023, the WHO declared COVID-19 was no longer a global emergency. This was an important milestone in the pandemic and underscores TWU’s transition to broader communicable disease prevention as we work with our local public health officials.

COVID-19 testing for someone who has symptoms of illness is available through the Wellness Centre on our Langley Campus. We offer travel testing for a fee as supply allows or you can find a community testing site.
