TRU COVID-19 Response

TRU recognizes many individuals within our university community have questions regarding COVID-19.

The university continues to monitor the situation and review the most up-to-date information and recommendations available through regional and provincial medical-health officers. For the latest information in British Columbia, visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website.

To see TRU’s institutional safety plan for our limited resumption of activities this fall, please visit our Risk Management Services area of our website.
