If you are arriving from outside of Canada, whether returning to campus or moving in for the first time, the Canadian Government requires you to quarantine (self-isolate) for 14 days and to self-monitor for symptoms. You cannot self-isolate in a shared unit. UBCO is offering a variety of self-isolation accommodation packages to those who need to self-isolate after arriving in Canada.
