To reduce the spread of COVID-19, WorkBC is following the provincial and federal governments’ mandates around social distancing.
Services are now available for Clients who do not have the technology or equipment to be served virtually. Note: during this time, most services will continue to be provided remotely by phone or online.
All in-person visits are by appointment only and Clients requesting in-person services will be screened by phone to determine if coming into the Centre is necessary.
One day before an in-person visit, Clients will complete a health screening questionnaire. If there are any signs of illness, the appointment will be rescheduled.
The number of people in the Centre at any time is limited and all appointments will be limited to one hour maximum. The Centre doors will be locked and Clients will wait outside until their appointment time. The use of hand sanitizer is required and available at the entrance. WorkBC does not supply masks, but Clients are welcome to wear masks.
Physical distancing of 2 metres will always be maintained. Computers, furniture and other equipment will be sanitized after each Client visit.
Please know, that although these are unsettling times, WorkBC staff are available to assist you.
