Plan for Stage 3 of BC's Reopening

July 9th 2021 Announcement

NDRC staff met this week to come up with a plan for BC’s latest Covid updates. BC has lifted the indoor mask mandate and put these protocols back in the hands of organizations. As an organization that works with seniors and vulnerable people with many different kinds of disabilities we have decided to play it safe and are requesting people still wear masks until all of our staff and volunteers have received their second dose. 

Parking Permits/ Resource Wall

 We have lifted our max client occupancy to 5 in the main lobby and turned our chairs around so more people can sit and those who come in together can sit together. We also still have the option of renewing parking permits by phone or mail. 

Computer School

We will continue to run the computer school as 1-1 sessions throughout the summer. Home visits will resume two weeks after computer school coordinator, Marie, receives her second dose. Once BC enters Stage 4 (currently estimated to be September 7th) we will revise this plan to include structured and unstructured classes.
