In response to the recent loosening of COVID-19 restrictions in BC, we are pleased to report some exciting updates to PAN’s operations.
Communicable disease prevention focuses on basic risk reduction principles to reduce the risk of workplace transmission of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. Our updated Communicable Disease Prevention Plan includes a variety of ongoing measures for our staff, and is based on the advice of Public Health and Worksafe BC.
PAN in-person events
As of April 1st, 2022 PAN will begin planning and convening in-person events again. Anyone participating in or attending such events will need to provide proof of full vaccination (2 or more doses) – unless they have a medical exemption – and be masked when indoors. Although the PHO orders/recommendations after April 8th do not require this (with the exception of visiting long-term care facilities), we want to continue to ensure the health and safety of all those who attend our events, especially the most vulnerable and those who are immunocompromised. We will review this again in September.
PAN office is open for meetings and appointments
The PAN office is open to staff, contractors, trainers and others who can provide proof of full vaccination (2 or more doses) and are wearing a mask for safety of all, as noted above. The office is open to visitors but strictly on an appointment basis.
