As you all may be aware, a new Provincial Health Order went into effect yesterday, Nov 19, 2020. Effective immediately all patrons will be required to wear a mask at all times when not at a table.
Masks are required in all indoor public settings and all retail stores.
Remember, a maximum of six people at a table and you cannot move between tables.
WorkSafeBC will be conducting inspections to verify that COVID-19 Safety Plans remain effective. Establishments that are noncompliant with plan requirements may face orders and fines, and possible referral to public health which may result in a closure order.
No spectators are allowed at any sports activities under the order. The only people allowed to attend sport activities are those that provide care to a participant or player. For example, providing first aid.
During a public health emergency under the Public Health Act, the PHO can make orders as needed. You must follow the orders.
Under the Government’s Emergency Program Act, some orders can be enforced by police or other compliance and enforcement officials. People who don’t follow these orders could be fined.
In addition to compliance activities by WorkSafe, an Environmental Health Officers team will focus on workplaces in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions to ensure COVID-19 Safety Plan compliance and enable rapid response and action.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
