Do you have any insight into how many manufacturing facilities have been issued closure orders? What can a business do to prevent a shut down from occurring if someone received Covid outside of work?

We don’t have the specific number province wide, it’s probably over 20 and less than 30. There may be new ones issued, so that number is changing. It’s not an extremely high number, however it’s the number of workplaces in general. in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, a large number of those have been restaurants, which has been a major area in seeing clusters. To my knowledge, none of our current closures affected the processing sector. We hope the success of the vaccination rollout measure has helped with this. We encourage everyone to get tested with symptoms, and carry out the same measures as before.
