The news surrounding COVID-19 virus variants in our province continues to keep pandemic preparedness top of mind and currently Dr. Bonnie Henry has extended the provincial order once again.
With new variants in our midst, there is no better time to keep your health and safety plans top of mind. Best practice dictates regularly revisiting and refreshing your safety plan in normal circumstances and this becomes even more important given the current public health emergency. Do take the time to make sure that all the provincial healthcare protocols specified, are still appropriate and relevant to the conditions and current health orders of the day. Don’t overlook this critical evaluation as the risks range from negative public perception to fines and enforcement.
