How the CVRD is adapting:

  • Following updates from the Provincial Health Officer and the Public Health Agency of Canada and adopting recommended measures
  • Stepping up cleaning protocols at all CVRD facilities and buildings that are open
  • Increased signage to bring awareness to safe physical distancing and limiting the number of people in confined spaces (e.g. elevator, meeting rooms)
  • Recommending that all staff follow proper hand washing protocols
  • Encouraging staff to stay home if they feel ill
  • Encouraging the practice of physical distancing, which includes the following: avoiding physical contact by not handshaking or hugging, using proper respiratory etiquette (covering mouth if coughing or sneezing)
