The B.C. government says construction sites can continue to operate despite social distancing measures meant to curb the coronavirus pandemic — but there will still be some restrictions.
The province said Sunday that workers will be able to operate as normal while still following orders from provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry to limit gatherings to 50 people and stay at least two metres apart from others.
Employers must ensure those orders are being followed at their sites, while also posting signage telling workers no more than four people can be inside an elevator at one time.
Site meetings should also be held outdoors or in open spaces as much as possible, the province added, while handwashing stations should be increased at all sites. Common areas and surfaces should also be cleaned daily.
