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.
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.
COVID-19 Vaccine Information from BCCDC
The COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved by Health Canada is safe, effective and will save lives.
Vaccines do more than protect the people getting vaccinated, they also protect everyone around them too. The more people in a community who are vaccinated and protected from COVID-19, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
More information on the COVID-19 vaccine can be found here.

BCIT supports vaccination rollout
In our latest efforts to support the province in its COVID-19 vaccination rollout, BCIT is providing space at the Burnaby Campus for the Fraser Health Authority to deliver drive-through COVID-19 immunizations and testing in parking Lot B and part of Lot 7. The Fraser Health Authority anticipates that this site will be up and running by April 19 to serve area residents.
