COVID-19 UpdateMar 17, 2020

As  a response to the COVID19 crisis, OV has suspended classes moving to online instructional format beginning March 18 2020. All of our outreach and clinical programs have been suspended at this time.  Currently this suspension is in effect until March 30 2019, but we are monitoring the situation closely and reacting as changes occur . We thank our staff, students, and the public for their ongoing support during this difficult time in BC.  The Office of the Provincial Medical Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control and Ministry of Health has also recommended the immediate cancellation or postponement until further notice of all events with more than 50 people in attendance.
