In light of increasing concerns about the impacts of COVID-19, Victoria West Community Association is following the recommendations of our public health officials and various levels of government to help minimize the potential impacts of the virus on those we serve, as well as our staff and volunteers.
While we are taking steps to increase sanitization and disinfecting practices at our Centre, we are also asking that all visitors to the Centre:
· Continue practicing hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette.
· Refrain from attending VWCA programs or services or from entering the Community Centre if you are experiencing symptoms associated with a respiratory illness (cough, fever, muscle ache, fatigue).
· Follow the recommendations from the Provincial Health Officer to self-isolate for 14 days if you have returned from out-of-country travel.
We encourage everyone to stay informed and take appropriate steps to maintain good health for themselves and others. The BC Centre for Disease Control has excellent information on identifying and managing symptoms and reducing risk. http://bccdc.ca/health-info/
Please know that we are monitoring the situation closely and in the event of any changes to our programming, we will post updates on our website and social media channels. Childcare Families, Program Participants, and Rentals will be contacted directly should any changes occur.
