PCRS is closely monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic, and acting as quickly as possible to gather information and make decisions on a day by day basis. We are actively following the advice of the Federal Government and BC’s Medical Health Officer to do our part in flattening the curve of COVID-19 infection in BC. As such we have temporarily closed non-essential worksites.
Many of our non-essential sites are re-opening. We are following the guidelines of WorkSafeBC in creating Safety Plans for each of our sites. The common measures that we are taking to ensure the safety of our staff and participants are to: require self screening for everyone who accesses our sites, hand hygiene protocols, regular sanitizing of high touch surfaces, social distancing, physical barriers and PPE. If you are visiting one of our sites the Safety Plan will be in an accessible location for your review.
PCRS will continue to provide our essential services during this crisis as well as offering online and phone support to our participants.
