We strongly encourage employees to only get their information from official sources but I have not been able to find data on how health orders are determined. Is that something that’s available?

WorkSafeBC website would be the best place to look to for a description of the new closure process. This is very new, as it was announced quite recently by the provincial health officer. Details have been formed in the most recent days what the approach will be with feedback from all the health regions. WorkSafeBC would be the go to site for that. Each of the health authorities will be monitoring for a cluster of cases over time. They’ve seen a number of cases have occurred in succession that are within the workplace would come to our attention, and the direction would be that those would be closed.
