Who should be staying home

CUPE 951 is recommending we follow the provinces directive that all elderly members or those with underlying medical conditions should stay at home.

Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer, have issued the following joint statement regarding updates on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response in British Columbia:

“We continue to remind people to please use hand hygiene, maintain social or physical distancing, and to stay at home if you are sick or at high risk for serious illness. That includes the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions.

If members are already working remotely, please continue to stay at home. If you fall into the risk categories listed above, you should be placed on medical leave with pay immediately.
