As we re-start many services and more people are in the workplace, please remember that all medical staff and staff must adhere to physical distancing requirements and appropriate hygiene practices (e.g. hand washing). This includes interactions with co-workers and others. Where physical distancing cannot always be achieved during certain care provider/patient interactions, Island Health is working with the province to ensure that PPE is made available. It is imperative that medical staff and staff use this equipment only when necessary and as prescribed by the Provincial Health Officer and our own Medical Health Officers. Individuals with flu-like symptoms should not be at work and recuperate at home. This allows you to get well and protects staff, medical staff and patients.
