Communicable Diseases

Transitioning from COVID-19 Safety Plans to Communicable Disease Prevention.
Due to the changes in terminology and standards the Communicable Disease page has replaced the COVID-19 Section.

AgSafe will continue to update our resources to assist employers with maintaining and updating their current safety plans to meet current standards.

REMINDER: While the focus is on COVID-19, remember "to stay up-to-date on your immunizations, including flu and tetanus-diphtheria booster.” -  Immunize BC
