COVID-19

The Provincial Government announced transition to Step 3 of the BC Restart Plan, effective July 1, 2021.  The Township is reviewing our service offerings and implementing necessary amendments to facility rules, keeping the health and safety of our staff and visitors in mind as increased vaccinations and reduced transmission occur in our community.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the Township has focused on proactively taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our community through the implementation and enforcement of facility rules.

On June 29, the Public Health Officer announced that the Province of BC will transition to Step 3 of the Restart Plan on July 1. With the further relaxation of restrictions, the Township continues to gradually re-introduce services and open facilities that have been impacted by COVID-19.

An important change that is underway is the transition from a required COVID-19 Safety Plan to a Communicable Disease Plan (“CDP”). For user groups that use Township facilities, the Township will be sending some revised guidance regarding CDP’s to streamline the process as much as possible based on the information released on June 29.

In addition to implementing a CPD to be compliant with WorkSafeBC regulation, the Township would like to remind visitors to its facilities of the following:

  • Masks are recommended for those 12 years of age and older inside Township facilities in all common areas and when 2m distance between individuals cannot be maintained. Exemptions for mask usage remain as-is:
    • People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one; or
    • People who cannot put on or remove a mask on their own
  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well.

As additional guidance is made available, the Township will communicate any further changes.
