BC’s Restart Plan – Phase 2 Guidance in Development
On May 6, 2020, Premier Horgan outlined BC’s Restart Plan which lays out a 4-Phased approach to rebuilding a resilient economy and keeping the public safe.
We appreciate that registrants are very keen to return to work and care for their patients as soon as possible. However, the safety of patients and health care professionals remains paramount.
Currently, we are in the process of finalizing consistent guidelines for community-based health providers in collaboration with the Provincial Health Office, other regulatory health profession colleges, and key stakeholders, to ensure that health care providers can operate safely under Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in mid-May and includes the restoration of health-related services under enhanced protocols. Until these protocols are released, we recommend that registrants remain cautious and continue to comply with the current orders and direction of the Provincial Health Officer and the CCBC.
We are committed to providing timely updates as information becomes available. We remain cautiously optimistic that the protocols will be available soon.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
