We’re celebrating diminished restrictions, however we’re asking for persistence as companies transition: Kelowna Chamber of Commerce

The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce celebrates the news that the province will enter the third phase of the restart plan.

The chamber also encourages Kelowna residents to respect each other’s decisions regarding wearing masks, noting that BC public health officials still recommend that those who have not been fully vaccinated continue theirs Wear masks.

The Chamber asks for your patience and understanding when companies switch from the mandatory use of masks to their requirement or recommendation.

“Masks continue to be an important part of protecting employees and the community, and there will be many companies who will prefer to use masks for longer periods of time, as is their right, and so are physical barriers to protect employees . ”Said Dan Rogers, Executive Director of the Chamber.

<p dir=Each company has the right to decide how to handle safety precautions for its employees, using the guidance from WorkSafeBC and a communicable disease plan.

The transition from mandatory mask use to recommended use will take time and may be different for each company.

The Chamber strongly encourages residents who have not yet received their first dose or who have booked their second dose to do so.

The Chamber hopes that opening up Canadian travel will provide some hope, recovery and buoyancy to businesses that have suffered during the pandemic – they are reminding residents to continue to support local businesses for that extra help in the coming months.
