The Public Health Agency of Canada and Alberta Health Services continue to assess developments related to coronavirus (COVID-19) and have advised that the public risk to Canadians remains low.
The health and safety of our program participants and staff is our number one priority. We have implemented a series of proactive measures as follows:
• Formed a committee to closely monitor the situation and keep up to date of current news.
• Increased sanitization of frequently touched and hard surfaces
• Verified our vendor’s community event sanitation policies and practices
In addition to the above, we are working with our vendors to implement the following:
1. Obtain pandemic plans of our vendors
2. Display communication materials in building lobbies
3. Update of our pandemic plans
There is currently no vaccine to prevent the COVID19 virus, however, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) recommends everyday preventative action to help to reduce the
transmission and infection of the virus as follows:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
• Cover your mouth with a tissue when coughing and dispose of properly
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
• Stay home when you are sick
