Hi again Members,
We are aware that today Calgary City Council passed the Calgary Vaccine Passport bylaw that comes into effect tomorrow (Sept 23).
We have spent some time interpreting this bylaw to discern its implications for CommunityWise and our members. From what we can tell, there are no changes to how members are currently accessing and using their offices. We will let you know if we learn anything that changes this understanding.
However, we wanted to again confirm that the following protocols remain in place at the building until further notice:
- Face masks are mandatory for all building users (including members’ staff, volunteers, board members, participants, visitors, and clients) in both common areas (hallways, common room, etc.) and office spaces except when an individual is alone at a workstation/desk and separated by at least 2 meters distance from all other persons (however, it is highly recommended that individuals continue to wear masks and maintain at least 2 meters distance in their offices at all times).
- As a mandatory work-from-home measure has been reinstated by the provincial government (unless the employer has determined that a physical presence is required for operational effectiveness), members are encouraged to work from home where possible.
- All individuals coming to the building for any reason should follow established practices including social distancing and not entering the building if sick. Conducting a COVID screening assessment of your own visitors is highly recommended.
We rely on you as members to ensure that your staff, volunteers, board members, participants, visitors, and clients are aware of the necessity of following these mandatory protocols and we appreciate your cooperation in this.
As always, we will continue to keep you updated as the pandemic situation evolves.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for keeping up with our communications these past 18 months!
