BY The Canadian Press, Jul 31, 2020 2:06 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

New COVID-19 guidelines for post-secondary institutions, ranging from transportation to support for international students, have been released as colleges and universities gear up for the start of classes in the fall.

Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training Melanie Mark says in a statement that the "Go Forward" guidelines will provide greater certainty to staff, students and faculty.

She says the guidelines provide a minimum standard for institutions to follow.

Mark says her ministry will work with the sector toward a full reopening, when it's safe.

She expects all 25 of B.C.'s post-secondary institutions to adopt the guidelines in a bit to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

The roadmap was produced by the post-secondary sector with support from the advanced education ministry.
