With MANY THANKS to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, we quote the following message:

"We are in an extraordinary period in which British Columbia, Canada, and the world are responding to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources has developed an information site with current guidance on COVID-19, as it pertains to mines in British Columbia.  In addition, the Public Health Officer has developed guidelines for Protecting Workers, Contractors, and Employers Working in the Natural Resource Sector During the COVID.

It is imperative that you adhere to current and evolving Provincial and Federal requirements and guidance on COVID-19-related matters. 

These requirements will impact your responsibility to communities, how you operate your facilities, and how you interact with the public and communities along your access route.  The requirements also have the potential to impact the timing of your proposed activities.  These considerations are to be made in addition to your usual responsibilities to employees and contractors."
