This page contains resources to help TRIUMF's community navigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Since the beginning of September there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people on site. Importantly, this increase in site activity and interactions have been accompanied by strong compliance with our current health and safety guidelines. We want to thank everyone for continuing to adhere to the mask mandate and continuing with your daily health check. 

As we are still under COVID restrictions, we are only accepting visitors that are coming to site for approved research, maintenance, collaboration, or other official TRIUMF business. Friends, family, and public tours are not permitted while COVID restrictions remain in effect.

On August 24, 2021, BC reinstated a mask mandate for all indoor public spaces. In accordance with this announcement, masks are now mandatory in all indoor shared and common areas.  TRIUMF will continue to review the direction offered by government and will provide regular updates to the community as guidance evolves.

This mandate notwithstanding, the province remains in Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan. In alignment with restart, TRIUMF has moved from COVID-19 specific responses, to a more general Communicable Disease Prevention approach that can be found here.

Most areas on site are no longer be subject to COVID-related occupancy limits; the MOB Auditorium (limited to 50 occupants) and lunchrooms will be open.

Moving forward, continue to maintain good hand hygiene, get vaccinated, and monitor your health. If you are sick, stay home. Any changes in health status must be reported to your supervisor, who will then take appropriate actions following the guidance outlined in the  Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. You must report a change in health even if you are working remotely. DO NOT COME TO TRIUMF IF YOU ARE SICK IN ANY WAY.
