This guide is a living document. More content will be added as new information and resources become available and as the COVID-19 situation develops.

While the guide provides up-to-date information on the COVID-19 pandemic, it should not be construed as advice or as a substitute for consulting a doctor. Information on Capilano University's response to COVID-19 and Health Resources are available on the university website.
