Many of you have probably been keeping up with the latest announcements this morning in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the press conference with BC Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. For those who have not heard, the provincial government has announced a ban on gatherings of 50 or more people. An announcement regarding schools will be made tomorrow.
I have contacted Island Health to find out what that means for licensed childcare facilities such as ours, as we have between 50-75 children registered on most days of Spring Break Camp. The person I spoke with told me that Island Health will be having a meeting this afternoon to discuss the implications of the latest developments and should have an update for us by this evening. Additionally, the KOSC Board of Directors will be holding an emergency meeting tomorrow evening to approve a formal policy response to the ongoing pandemic.
We will continue to provide updates as we receive more information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
