COVID-19 and workplace safety

The Resort Municipality of Whistler is committed to protecting the health and safety of its residents, visitors and staff. The Public Health Office order requiring businesses to have COVID-19 Safety Plans expired on April 8, 2022. 

WorkSafeBC is supporting employers to transition from safety plans to communicable disease prevention to manage the risks of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases in the workplace.
