As we plan to enter Step 3 of the BC Restart Plan on July 1, the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC are preparing to release new guidance for employers. As capacity restrictions ease and masking requirements evolve, COVID-19 safety plans will transition to workplace communicable disease prevention programs as indicated by WorkSafe BC.
