Will the updated approach to the COVID-19 safety plans still require people to do COVID-19 self-assessments, stay home if they are sick, and wash their hands?
Yes. Effective COVID-19 safety plans combine layers of protection to keep people safe, so it is highly likely that these controls will continue to be recommended for the fall. Safety plans need to meet the requirements set out by public health and WorkSafeBC. These measures reduce the risk of other transmissible diseases including influenza, “the flu,” and the common cold.
