The Centre for Digital Media is monitoring information and recommendations about COVID-19 from our partner universities and provincial medical health officers.

The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our #1 priority and, currently, the risk to people in British Columbia and the rest of Canada is considered low.

We are in the middle of cold and flu season (typically October to March every year), so it is not unusual for people to be getting colds and flu right now. We ask that you please follow the usual health precautions, including:

  • Washing your hands often
  • Practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette to prevent the spread of illness
  • Staying at home if you are sick

Overall, we want to encourage everyone to be kind and supportive of one another and not to let fear and anxiety can take over. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity and no one should be targeted or subjected to discrimination based on their race, ancestry or place of origin.

If you have further questions, please read through SFU’s Frequently Asked Questions About the Coronavirus.
