Communicable Disease Prevention Plan

Camp 5 Calling of the Engineer Ceremony 

Communicable Disease Prevention Plan 

April 18, 2022 


This Communicable Disease Prevention Plan outlines the control measures Camp 5 will implement to help prevent transmission of communicable diseases at the 2022 in-person Calling of an Engineer Ceremony. The communicable disease of concern, and the focus of this plan, include, but may not be limited to, coronavirus (COVID-19), norovirus and influenza. This plan applies to students, ring presenters, other attendees, volunteers and the Camp 5 Wardens and Alternate Wardens (referred to as attendees).  

This Plan meets the requirements of the Provincial Health Officer guidance, notices or orders in effect at the time of the ceremony (see reference 1) and health and safety practices of the Vancouver Convention Centre (see reference 2).

Control Measures 

Following provincial health recommendations (reference 3): 

  • Stay at home when sick
    • If your attendees are sick, stay home.
    • If any member of an attendee’s household or social group is sick, even if they are vaccinated, attendees should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. 
    • People who have symptoms should refer to the COVID-19 testing information to determine if testing is appropriate and follow self-isolation guidelines.
  • Practice good hygiene etiquette
    • Hand sanitizer will be provided, and attendees are encouraged to clean their hands often with soap and water. Attendees should cough or sneeze into their elbow.
  • Wear a mask.
    • While wearing a mask in an indoor space is not a requirement on the Provincial Health Officer, Camp 5 is choosing to require masks. If students do not have a mask, they will be available.
  • Proof of vaccination is not required.
  • Wardens will not ring all students.
    • To limit the movement of people, the Wardens will ring the first student in the row then, like a wave, the students will ring the next adjacent student down the row. (Does not apply to students with ring presenters.)
  • Rely on Vancouver Convention Center’s safety measures which include frequent cleaning of all surfaces, hand sanitization stations throughout the facility and a modern ventilation and air filtration system.

Control Measures 

Following provincial health recommendations (reference 3): 

An online ceremony option will be offered to support students to stay home when sick or for students who are unable to attend an in-person ceremony for personal reasons.
