Campus Visit Protocols

In an effort to support the well-being of all GNS community members, we kindly ask all visitors to abide by the following protocols. These health and safety protocols are based on the Health Canada and the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control recommendations, in an effort to reduce the spread and transmission of the COVID-19 virus. GNS acknowledges that individuals may have different levels of comfort when it comes to their own health and safety and wishes to support the well-being of each member of our community.
Unplanned visits to the campuses are discouraged at this time. Parents and visitors should not enter school property without an appointment unless their presence is connected to a planned school activity where audiences or attendance has been encouraged by the school. When planning a visit, please contact the appropriate staff member to arrange a meeting time and location. In some instances, it may be preferred/possible/necessary to arrange a virtual meeting as an alternative. Once arriving on campus, please report to the main reception areas, where you will be asked to sign in and provide a contact number for contact tracing purposes. These details will be maintained for a minimum of 45 days and may be shared with Medical Health Authorities upon their request.


Prior to arrival visitors will be asked the following questions:
  • Are you currently exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, as per the BC Centre for Disease Control documentation?
  • Have you recently visited any outbreak area, or have you come into contact with anyone who has visited an outbreak area, in the last 14 days?
  • Have you completed the BC COVID-19 Self Assessment Screening Tool? Please do so prior to your visit to GNS.
  • Have you been directed to quarantine or self-isolate at this time?
Admissions or reception staff will confirm answers to these questions at the time of arrival:
  • Have you answered NO to all the questions we asked in our confirmation email?
    • If not, please reschedule.
  • Have you completed the Self Assessment Screening Tool?
    • If answered ‘yes’ to any questions in the screening tool, please reschedule.
  • Are you symptomatic? Is there any chance you've been exposed?
    • If answered ‘yes’, please reschedule.
Guidelines for visit on campus:
  • Parents, caregivers, and other visitors must respect personal space and avoid unintentional physical contact with other individuals when on campus and follow all other health and safety guidelines. There can be no crowding while on school grounds, including when outside.
  • All visitors are required to wear a mask when indoors on campus. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, please let us know and we will adjust our meeting spaces accordingly. In some cases, it may be preferable to meet with visitors outside in these situations.
  • Visitors should go directly to the appropriate reception area as soon as they arrive on campus and should limit their movement on campus to only the spaces necessary for the intention of the visit.
  • Students are not allowed to arrange food delivery services to the school.
