COVID-19 Information - Boucher Campus
The British Columbia Provincial Health Officer requires all students of post-secondary institutions participating in the delivery of any medical services at a care location for training to be vaccinated for COVID-19. This provincial order applies to all students acting as primary interns, secondary interns, students shadowing in the clinic as well as Y1T1 students at the Boucher Campus for all Boucher clinics as well as for preceptoring and externships.
If you believe you have a valid medical exemption, you need to seek the approval of the regional Medical Health Officer for the Fraser Health District.
The College is required to comply with the provincial directive. It is not known how long this Order will remain in effect, but it is likely to be for at least the remainder of this year and the first half of 2023.
NOTE: Students must have received both doses, plus wait a period of 14 days from the last dose to be considered fully vaccinated.
COVID-19 Screening Form - Boucher Campus
Effective Nov. 1, 2021 ALL faculty, staff and students who are accessing the campus or Boucher clinics (onsite or external) must complete and submit the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool prior to entering the campus or external sites each day they will be on site.
- A screen shot of the completed app including the date and time must be emailed by you, to BCScreening@ccnm.edu.
- This will enable us to track compliance and help Fraser Health with contract tracing if there is an exposure incident.
If a person does not have access to a device that will support the app, they will instead be required to submit the attached Communicable Disease Questionnaire each day they will be entering campus or one of the clinics.
- All members of the CCNM – Boucher Campus community must be extremely attentive about completing the COVID-19 or Communicable disease self-assessment prior to entering CCNM – Boucher Campus each day they will be on campus and must use their Boucher ID cards when accessing the campus.

- Individuals experiencing symptoms must stay home and are recommended to be tested for COVID-19 as outlined in the CCNM - Boucher Fall Campus Plan 2021.
Failure to comply with these communicable diseases (including COVID-19) requirements is considered a breach of conduct and sanctions may be an outcome for an individual who continues to disregard procedure.
