We are closely following the guidelines of the BC Centre for Disease Control, Public Health Agency of Canada and the World Health Organization to proactively take measures to maintain the health of everyone in contact with our agency.
What are we doing?
Our Health and Safety team has implemented multiple cleanings of all the houses, cars, staff rooms and LMSCL offices throughout the day, including sanitizing all door handles that lead to the houses, mailboxes, files and binders, kitchens, laundry machines and dryers, washrooms, printers, medication safe-boxes, computer mouse and keyboards, house keys and all common surface areas.
What can you do?
- If you need to cough or sneeze, please do so in your arm or your sleeve, not your hand. Alternatively, use a tissue and discard the tissue in the garbage immediately, and wash your hands with soap and warm water or use hand sanitizer.
- If you are not feeling well, please stay home and take care of yourself. Call the office or email the OHS Supervisor.
Let’s stay healthy together!
Rest assured that we are doing our best to keep our children, youth and individuals safe and on low risk of exposure.
