Campus Visit Protocols

In an effort to support the well-being of all GNS staff, students, and visitors, we kindly ask you 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. When visits are necessary, please contact the appropriate staff member to arrange a meeting time and location. In some instances, it may be 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 may be shared with Medical Health Authorities upon their request.

Protocols

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.
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:
  • Drop-in visits are not permitted. Parents and visitors should not enter school property without an appointment.
  • We kindly ask that all visitors wear a mask when 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.
  • We will aim to meet outside wherever possible to allow for appropriate distancing.
  • Please use hand sanitizer wherever provided and try to avoid touching your face or mouth.
  • Visitors should go directly to the appropriate reception area as soon as they arrive on campus.
At this time, we are prioritizing Admissions visits for entry in September 2020 to GNS. Families interested in considering GNS for September 2021 should complete the Inquiry Form and an admissions staff will follow up with more information. We also welcome the opportunity for virtual meetings to learn more about GNS.
