Powell River Recreation Complex COVID-19 Safety Plan

The Powell River Recreation Complex COVID-19 Safety Plan is designed to align with the response and recovery approach of the Province of BC which includes identifying and establishing steps to minimize the risk of exposure to the coronavirus for employees and the public using the strategies and protocols. Our restart is dependent on provincial, regional, and regulatory bodies affirming it is safe to do so and upon employees and the public following the safety plans that have been established.

Municipal governments are guided by the direction of localprovincial and federal health authorities on matters related to public health and this restart plan will be continually monitored and evaluated based upon directives issued by the Province of BC, The Public Health Officer, and Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.  Moving forward, we will continue taking direction from the Provincial Health Officer and health authorities and any measures taken by the City will be aligned with their recommendations.
