By order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), in-person UBC events — both indoors and outdoors — are suspended. Events are required to be held virtually with only essential staff on site in-person to support the virtual event delivery and broadcast. The order came into effect November 19, 2020 at midnight and will be kept in place until further notice based on direction from the PHO. Visit ubc.ca for information updates on COVID-19 and UBC’s response.
