Building Bridges cares deeply for the people we support and for our workers. As such, we have put policies in place to ensure safety for everyone. Our policies have been created using recommendations from WorkSafe BC, Community Living BC, the provincial and federal governments, and the CDC and other health organizations. These policies are reviewed often and updated as new information is presented.
Our COVID policies include, but are not limited to:
Limiting driving participants to one participant per vehicle. Each person must wear a mask, and the participant must sit in the back seat. Hand sanitizer is used before getting into the vehicle, and disinfecting is done after each individual.
Cancellation of all in person group activities and moving to Zoom events instead.
IN HOME SUPPORT
Workers must mask and physically distance while in individuals’ homes. Workers must change clothes if visiting multiple homes in a day.
Isolation protocols are in place for people who have travelled off Vancouver Island, or have had visitors from off island. Remote services are offered during times of isolation.
Health checks are performed before each visit. All testing and symptoms are reported and closely monitored.
PPE is made available to workers as needed.
