Vision Loss Rehabilitation British Columbia suspends in-person services until further notice

March 25, 2020

Like many of you, Vision Loss Rehabilitation British Columbia (VLRBC)has been monitoring the potential impact of COVID-19 and actively preparing to meet the demands of the evolving situation.

The Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the current risk as high, and are directing us to practice physical distancing and advising employers to offer virtual/distance-based work plans for employees. The health and safety of our clients and employees is of utmost importance. Therefore, in-person services have been suspended until further notice and transitioned to virtual care.

Dr. Bonnie Henry, Public Health Officer, has recently asked all British Columbians to “do their part to prevent the transmission of infections in our communities and in our health-care system.”

You can stay healthy and prevent the spread of infections by:

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Coughing or sneezing into your sleeve and not your hands
  • Staying home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others

We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when we will resume drop-in and in-person services within our office locations. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-844-887-8572.

Your privacy is important to us. That's why we've updated our privacy policy.
