As the province moves toward a long-term approach to managing COVID-19, Victoria will remain committed to supporting an environment that creates healthy and safe spaces for our students, staff, and faculty.  We would like to remind and encourage you to continue following guidelines as posted and to do more if it makes you feel comfortable, or if it helps the people around you.
