COVID-19 Updates

CMHA-COWICHAN VALLEY BRANCH COVID-19 PROGRAM UPDATES

To comply with the most recent provincial health guidelines, we have taken the following precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

We continue to be vigilant in the protection of our staff, clients and business partners. All staff will be encouraged, but not required, to wear masks. Social distancing will also be encouraged.  Extra cleaning will continue.

By taking these steps, CMHA-CVB is doing its best to protect the community and our staff.
Thank you for the effort that all of you are making during this very challenging time.

WARMLAND HOUSE SHELTER (2579 Lewis St):

For security reasons, the shelter gates will continue to be closed 24-hours per day. Clients needing to use services are buzzed in so that we can manage how many people are inside at any one time. Outside agencies and people who are not transitional housing tenants are not permitted to gather inside. Tables in the dining area have been further spaced apart, and meals are served directly to people. Some meals are provided as bag lunches.
