Notification of COVID-19 cases
Vancouver Coastal Health provides direction on the notification of COVID-19 cases based on established public health protocols. The City of Richmond follows that direction should cases occur in a public facility and will not compromise the health and safety of our community.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. You can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Practice physical distancing. Keep a distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) from others, as much as possible.
- Stay home if you feel ill and have flu symptoms such as fever or cough.
- Practice good cough and sneeze etiquette.
- Avoid touching your face prior to washing your hands.
- Wear a mask, especially when indoors and in public spaces. Health officials say it can help to reduce the spread of airborne particles.
- Recognize that feelings of fear, stress and worry are normal in a crisis. Support your mental health and wellbeing.
The City Services Restoration Plan consists of five steps, which exist along a service restoration continuum of lower risk, lower impact on the left to higher risk, higher impact on the right. The timing and order of each step, and the restoration of individual programs and services within each step, is subject to change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. This plan assumes that there is no setback in the collective societal progress to flatten the curve of infections.
