Today, the BC Government urged that gatherings of 250 people or more be cancelled or postponed to help slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) As a result, the Vancouver Island Conference Centre will be cancelling or postponing all gatherings of this size until further notice.
We are currently working to reschedule upcoming events and conferences and will be contacting organizers directly.
The safety and well-being of our employees, partners, suppliers and guests is our top priority. We will continue to follow recommendations from the BC Centre for Disease Control, BC Government and local authorities as the situation develops.
As we continue to closely monitor the situation, we remain focused on upgraded daily cleaning of the building and preventative measures in the front- and back-of-the-house. Following recommendations from the Ministry of Health, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) and local authorities, our staff is focused on the disinfection of high-touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, elevator buttons and bathrooms. We have also heightened food service policies to reflect a proactive approach to housekeeping, sanitation, hygiene and food handling.
Our staff, partners and guests are encouraged to follow standard health precautions, such as consistent hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes. We encourage individuals who are sick to stay home.
Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. We will continue to release more information as it becomes available.
