Trinity Western University's Richmond campus at Lansdowne Centre welcomed students for orientation today.

To prevent crowding, students arrived at staggered times. University staff screened students for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entrance, and a clinical nurse conducted temperature checks and provided health-related guidance. Students were also offered free non-medical masks, if they were not already wearing one. 

“We have created what we believe to be a very safe and regulated environment for students to feel comfortable in small group learning, which we believe will really benefit them,” said TWU Richmond director Rebecca Swaim.

Every student was given a personal ID and security key card upon registration. The university’s premises are accessible only by key card to enhance safety. 

On campus, floors are marked with arrows to direct traffic flow. Classrooms have been arranged for a reduced capacity of students, with seating spaced out to accommodate social distancing. Some students joined classes virtually via live stream.
