COELS Pandemic Response Planning
In December 2019, a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was detected in three patients with pneumonia connected to the cluster of acute respiratory illness cases from Wuhan, China. By the end of February 2020, several countries were experiencing sustained local transmission, including in Europe.
Canada was no exception and on March 13, 2020, BC issued health and travel advisories. This resource guide has been adapted through information found in the Public Health Agency of Canada websites, MNP Planning Guide for Pandemics and through discussions with the Senior Management team of the Circle of Eagles Lodge Society in responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
This document has been prepared for the Board of Directors of COELS, Senior Management, Key Personnel, and partners including CSC and other funders. This document should also be read in conjunction with other key documents such as the COELS and Anderson Lodge Healing Centre for Women Policies and Procedures Manual.
COELS will follow all guidelines set by the Public Health Agency and other Government departments and will work in partnership to mitigate the risk to the Brothers and Sisters Healing Lodges as well as those who work, visit and volunteer there.
This is a living document and will be updated on an as need basis as more information becomes available.
