COVID-19 health and safety

The City continues to take direction from the provincial government about COVID-19 safety guidelines.

Review the City’s Communicable Disease Plan (647 KB) that outlines essential safety protocols aligned with direction from the province, public health, and WorkSafeBC. Update and publicly post physical copies of site COVID-19 safety plans.

Staff can do their part by following all safety measures, especially staying home if they have any COVID-19 symptoms and calling 8-1-1 for direction.

This page has the latest updates to help answer your questions about COVID-19 health and safety.

Working at City work sites

When you are working at an office or work site, ensure you follow all COVID-19 safety requirements.

If you are working at City Hall, remember to carry your City ID/access card as floor access from stairwells and elevators is key card access only. Report any security concerns or incidents through regular processes.

Mask use

To align with the latest public health guidance, masks are no longer required in City public and workspaces. At your preference, you are welcome to continue to wear a mask on the job for personal protection. 

Some specific roles will require the continued use of masks as PPE. Those of you subject to those requirements must continue to wear masks at work or while performing specific work activities. As always, everyone is expected to follow safety protocols applicable to our roles at all times.

Vaccines

We collectively support the Provincial Health Officer's efforts to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our workplaces and the community.
