Further Adaptations Recommended by Office of Provincial Health Officer

On Wednesday, April 1, 2020, the Office of the Provincial Health Officer provided further guidance to help protect the safety and well-being of individuals and support workers in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The notice from the Office of the Provincial Health Officer was as follows:

In light of the increasing community transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 in British Columbia we encourage CLBC to continue implementing public health measures including:

• physical distancing of at least 2 meters (learn more here)

• frequent hand hygiene (learn more here)

• cleaning and disinfection

• self-isolation of individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 for a minimum of 10 days

More information regarding the public health measures described above can be found on the BCCDC website. Reducing the number of interactions between individuals will help further reduce the spread of COVID-19.

CVS is currently doing everything to reduce the spread of COVID-19 across its community. The steps we have taken since January have sought to minimize exposure and enable us to still provide support for the individuals we serve. We will continue to do this and assess situations on a case-by-case basis as needed.
