COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PREVENTION PLAN
As vaccinations have become widely available, the overall risk of COVID-19 transmission is reduced. However, the virus may still circulate, as will the viruses for other communicable diseases, such as seasonal influenza, norovirus, and others. Effective July 1, 2021 we have entered Step 3 of British Columbia’s Restart Plan:
- Masks are recommended in indoor public places for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. Masks are optional for children aged 2 to 12. Children under 2 should not wear masks.
- Increased social contact is allowed.
- Canada-wide recreational travel is allowed.
- Employers are no longer required to maintain a COVID-19 Safety Plan, and can instead transition to communicable disease prevention plan.
A communicable disease is an illness caused by an infectious agent or its toxic product that can be transmitted in a workplace from person to person. Examples of communicable diseases that may circulate in a workplace include COVID-19, norovirus, and seasonal influenza.
Tally-Ho Risk Assessment = Low (we offer an outdoor activity, designed for private groups of up to 6 people, and can maintain safe speaking distances.)
Communicable Disease Prevention Measures for all Staff
The following practices and procedures are established in accordance with WorkSafeBC recommendations for safe operation. We will continue to monitor their advice closely and enhance our actions, as necessary.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Suggested times to wash your hands:
- Before and after going on a break;
- After using the washroom;
- After handling cash or other materials that have come into contact with the public; and
- Before and after handling shared tools and equipment.
- Cover your mouth with the inside of your arm when you cough or sneeze.
- If you or anyone in your household feels sick stay home and get tested immediately.
- Staff are no longer required to wear masks while working: this is now at your discretion.
- Prior to leaving on a tour ask your guests if they are comfortable with you being unmasked. Please accommodate their preference (to mask, or not to mask).
- To ensure everyone’s (staff, guests, etc.) ongoing health, please ensure you continue to regularly sanitize high-touch areas in the workplace.
Thank you from the staff and management. Stay safe – we all benefit!
