UPDATE: Holes poked in condoms at UFV Abbotsford prompts warning

Those who picked up condoms for free are being warned not to use them

People who picked up condoms on UFV's campuses in both Abbotsford and Chilliwack are being warned not to use them

Students, faculty and staff are being warned not to use condoms that were available for free since Sept. 1 on both Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses of the University of the Fraser Valley.

The school issued an advisory stating it came to the attention of staff that the condoms, which were available for free in several public washrooms, were possibly unsafe and no longer a safeguard against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

It is believed someone poked holes in condoms available in a bathroom on the school’s Abbotsford campus. The warning was issued soon after this was reported to school staff around 3:45 p.m. on Friday.

Condoms from the following locations may have been tampered with:

– All washrooms on all floors of the Student Union Building on the Abbotsford Campus

– The Peer Resource and Leadership Centre area in the SUB Building in Abbotsfordf

– The reception area of Baker House residence

– The Student Life Lounge in Building A at the Chilliwack campus

Remaining condoms have been removed from the bathrooms and will not be replaced, the release states.

“UFV is taking this seriously and we are investigating under our student non-academic conduct policy,” said spokesperson Dave Pinton.

There is no police investigation at this time, he said.

Anyone with health concerns is encouraged to go to their family doctor or walk-in clinic.

People with further questions or concerns can email in confidence to: info.studentservices@ufv.ca
