The novel coronavirus primarily spreads via respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing during close person-to-person contact. It also spreads by touching surfaces with the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands.
Wearing of a mask in public indoor area facilities is mandatory
Frequent cleaning and disinfection help prevent spread of the disease.
Clean often. Common areas should be kept clean and free from clutter.
Commonly touched areas should be cleaned and disinfected twice daily or whenever visibly soiled.
Commonly touched areas include light switches, doorknobs, toilets, taps, hand rails, counter tops, toys, touch screens/mobile devices, remote controls, keyboards, laundry machine control panels, and vending machines.
Current public health measures:
Mandatory masking province-wide in indoor public spaces -Indoor Public Event Gatherings:
Indoor public receptions in public venues will be limited to 30 people. Food or beverages may not be present or served.
Increase cleaning and disinfection of all common areas and surfaces such as door knobs/handles, check-in counter tops, elevator buttons, light switches, vending machines, and washrooms. Frequently touched surfaces in guest rooms must also be disinfected using a disinfectant that has a Drug Identification Number (DIN).
Complimentary drinks and snacks should be removed from the lobby and other areas. Buffets and self-serve options should not be offered. Items may be dispensed to public by staff following proper hand hygiene requirements.
After guests have left an isolation room, designated staff should thoroughly clean and disinfect potentially contaminated surfaces with an approved disinfectant, and launder all cloth items.
Public gatherings of any size beyond your immediate household are strongly discouraged at this time.
Get vaccinated as soon as possible. Once vaccinated, the protocols for the people will change.
However, many individuals and clubs are also faced with many challenges – socially, financially, and otherwise. As a result, many are opening to small activities that they feel comfortable doing. The degree of infection is varying across the province and among different groups of people.
Clubs have to make some of their own decisions based on risk and reward. One standard mandate cannot and does not apply across the province.
