Fraser Health has only one business listed on its COVID-19 workplace closures list.
The latest, as of June 14, is Titanium Auto Group T2 on 19602 Fraser Hwy. in Langley.
According to the authority, closures as long as 10 days take effect when at least three or more employees recently test positive for COVID-19.
Since April 8, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has asked all authorities to disclose the names of workplaces where three or more people have COVID-19 and transmission is likely to have occurred.
The closure notice can be served by the health authority’s environmental health officers or WorkSafeBC with the goal to stop any potential spread of the virus and limiting community transmission.
“By using targeted worksite closures around current cases of COVID-19, we may be able to avoid or delay broader workplace closure measures, which could close entire business sectors,” states Fraser Health on its website.
