We at SCACL are concerned about the lives potentially affected by COVID-19.
SCACL continues to monitor and assess this evolving situation and appropriately respond based on guidance issued by public health authorities. Current guidance from the B.C. Center for Disease Control, Vancouver Coastal Health, Community Care Licensing, Canada Public Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is still relatively low for most people and the current recommendation is for increased hygiene practices and social distancing to prevent the spread of exposure.
Accordingly, at this time, SCACL continues to communicate with staff in regards to supplies, staffing, infection control, and emergency planning. We have confidence in the conformance by our staff to SCACL standards for infection prevention and control and other health and safety practices, as well as their emergency preparedness.
SCACL will communicate updates on an ongoing basis and will inform stakeholders if further emergency controls are to be put in place.
