Workplace and Businesses with COVID-19 Cases
For employers that may be affected by positive COVID-19 employees at their business, Interior Health has a resource for employers that will help answer any questions and provide guidance for businesses to develop appropriate workplace responses in these situations.
Due to increased COVID-19 cases linked to workplace transmissions, expedited workplace closures are now in effect. Businesses with COVID-19 outbreaks in their workplaces may be ordered to close by a medical health officer or environmental health officer to limit the spread of COVID-19 from the workplace into our communities.
COVID-19 Safety Plan Requirements for Employers
In accordance with the order of the Provincial Health Officer, this plan must be posted at the worksite. During an Interior Health or WorkSafeBC inspection, the safety plan will be reviewed.
For the manufacturing industry, Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC may be able to assist you with creation or review of your COVID-19 plan to ensure you have all the appropriate controls in place.
