The Chilliwack Economic Recovery Network (CERN) has created resource webpages for local businesses as they figure out how to operate in a pandemic.
Businesses that re-open during the second phase of the province’s re-start plan have a lot to think about.
They must create an individualized COVID-19 safety plan and follow best-practice guidelines for the safety of employees and customers.
The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce website has all the info a business could ask for, including the province’s 24 page Restart Plan and WorkSafeBC recommendations
A second webpage at www.chilliwackchamber.com/eventspage/news/chamber-blog/ will help Chilliwackians find out which businesses are open.
“Working together to ensure the safe restart of businesses during phase two of B.C.’s Restart Plan is a great way to help keep our community safe while working towards economic recovery for everyone in Chilliwack,” said Chilliwack mayor Ken Popove. “I hope residents will choose to support local businesses, especially those businesses that have taken the time to ensure safe operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
CERN info will also be available on Facebook (facebook.com/chilliwackeconomicrecovery), Instagram (@Chilliwackeconomicrecovery) and Twitter (@chwkrecovery).
The CERN includes representation from the City of Chilliwack, Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO), Community Futures South Fraser, Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association, National Research Council – IRAP, Stó:lō Community Futures and Tourism Chilliwack.
