Recently the World Health Organization has warned of an outbreak of the Ebola virus in West Africa, specifically in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. As a result, Health Canada is recommending avoiding travel to these countries. To learn more about the travel notice, please visit the Canada Public Health Agency.
There has not been a reported case of the Ebola virus in Canada and the risk to BCIT students, staff, and faculty is very low. However, we are very aware of the situation and as part of our usual responsibilities; we are monitoring BCIT related travel requests to the impacted areas.
Additionally, those who have recently traveled to the continent of Africa, especially in the impacted countries, should be aware of this disease and monitor their health. If you feel unwell within 21 days of returning from these countries, please contact your health care provider immediately.
