Communicable disease prevention resources (for COVID-19, flu, and other illness)

Effective January 7, 2022, employers are once again required to reactivate their COVID-19 Safety Plans. See COVID-19 Resources for more information and tools.

In Step 3 and beyond of the BC Restart Plan, except where mandated by Public Health, B.C. businesses were no longer required to have a COVID-19 Safety Plan. In place of the formal COVID-19 plan, employers needed a communicable disease prevention plan in place. This changed on January 7 with the new Public Health order for workplaces.

Below, you will find resources, tools, and training for small employers to help prevent the spread of disease in the workplace.
