We are happy to share with you the updated version of the re-opening toolkit for tourism operators.
We are all excited to have reached the point of encouraging British Columbians and our fellow Canadians to #exploreBCnow.
This toolkit is designed as a guide for operators for Step 3, which starts July 1 and will run until at least September 7. It includes:
– Summary of current guidelines
– links to help operators with recruiting and training staff
– information on topics such as the evolution of mask use from a requirement to recommendations, and changes to capacity restrictions for events and festivals
– information on the marketing campaigns to help restart the visitor economy, and how to participate
One of the biggest shift for operators in Step 3 is that COVID-19 Safety Plans are no longer required, and all workplaces will evolve to include communicable disease plans in their regular health and safety plan. To this end, go2HR is hosting a webinar July 5 from 2-3 p.m. on how to implement a communicable disease program. You can register here.
We hope this toolkit is helpful for you, and would be happy to hear any feedback or suggestions you might have for the next version. We’ll be updating it as conditions change, and we learn more about operating in the current environment.
