SERVICES UPDATE - COVID-19

The health and safety of everyone - our clients, our employees, and our community is important to us.

We are employing the following measures in our Merritt WorkBC office to reduce our chances of transmitting COVID-19 as much as possible:

 

September 28, 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE   Mandatory Face Covering

Safety continues to be WorkBC Merritt’s number one priority and we will continue to take measures necessary to ensure the well-being of our clients and employees. We’re prioritizing the health of our clients, our employees, and our communities.


As the COVID-19 situation continues to change, we’re taking action to better serve you and our staff.

Effective Monday, September 28th WorkBC Merritt has a mandatory face covering policy in effect. If you do not have a mask, one will be supplied to you upon entering.


Health Canada has identified that, when worn properly, a person wearing a mask / face covering can reduce the spread of infectious respiratory droplets. For this reason, we are now requiring all clients and employees to wear a mask or face covering in areas of our office accessible to the public.

 

We are offering in-person and virtual services to help you find and keep employment. In the event you do require an in-person visit, we can assure you we are following WorkSafeBC policies regarding COVID-19 safety in our office. This includes regular surface disinfecting, hand washing/sanitizing, and physical distancing. 


WE ARE OPEN FOR WALK-INS Monday - Friday  (except on holidays) 
9:00 – 11:00 AM and 2:00 – 4:00 PM   

Our regular office hours are
Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM and Wed 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

 ** All services are available including resume assistance, work clothing and equipment for new jobs, self employment and occupational training.
