COVID - 19 Safety measures
My City Photos has updated the following COVID-19 Safety Plan to include updated safe operating protocols when providing indoor recreation activities.
The Safety Plan is based on the guidelines and recommendations from the Provincial Health Office, Fraser Health Authority, WorkSafe BC, and the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association.
The My City Photos Safety Plan is designed to provide the guidelines and procedures for a safe reopening and on-ongoing operation of our facility and programs during the current pandemic. The plan will be updated as needed, based upon the latest information, notices, and orders from the Provincial Health Office, Fraser Health Authority, and WorkSafe BC.
This Safety Plan centers around the 5 key principles in the Province of British Columbia’s Restart Plan:
*Stay home if sick
*Safe social interactions
These 5 key principles have been expanded and modified to fit the specific requirements for our organization.
*Proper handwashing remains the most important strategy to stay healthy.
*Wash hands with soap and warm water often - for at least 20 seconds.
*Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
*Hand sanitizer will be available at each building entrance, as well as, throughout the building.
*LL will greet you and your child at the entrance and will screen participants for
COVID-19 symptoms and explain the program safety & social distancing measure in place.
*LL will make sure that all participants use hand sanitizer or wash their hands with soap & water upon arrival.
*LL will always wash her hands and use sanitizer throughout the day, after touching any items in the room that others may touch.
*Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or arm/elbow when coughing or sneezing. Immediately
discard the tissue in the garbage.
*LL will discourage touching faces, especially eyes, mouth and nose, and mask.
*There will be no communal meals/snacks – food must NOT be shared.
*Limit entry to the washroom of one person at a time.
*Open doors and windows to keep air circulating whenever possible.

Stay Home if Sick

runny nose, shortness of breath, or fever

This sign-in form doubles as a Covid Tracking sheet where visitors leave their contact information for contact tracing purposes.
