COVID-19 Update

If you are sick or required to self-isolate, please do not come to campus.

BCIT Student Health Services is currently open for BCIT students by appointment only.  All patients will be seen for an initial phone or video appointment, where they will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to booking of any necessary follow-up in-person appointments.

To find out if you are required to self-isolate, should be tested for COVID-19, or need to seek medical care, you can call 8-1-1, call your health care provider or use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool. You can complete this self-assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else. If you are required to self-isolate, please follow the self-isolation guidelines as recommended by the BC Centre for Disease Control.

COVID-19 Testing Procedure

BCIT Student Health Services is directing people with possible COVID-19 symptoms to visit a designated BC COVID-19 Collection Centres for testing. There are several locations, with at least one in close proximity to each of our campuses, and the use of centralized testing facilitates consistency of history taking, reliability of contact tracing and coordinated use of PPE to help in our collective public health efforts.

The nearest COVID-19 Collection Centre to our Burnaby Campus is the Central Park Site at Boundary Road and 46th Avenue and is open from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., 7 days a week (approximately a 10 minute drive from the Burnaby Campus). You can access testing by booking an appointment online, with instructions and hours of availability listed for each site at the above link. Results from testing are typically provided within 1-2 days.

Mental Health at Home

BCIT has student well-being front-of-mind. With so much happening, it’s normal to feel worried and overwhelmed, and it’s important to look after your mental health and well-being during COVID-19.
