For several municipalities, physical distancing for COVID-19 prevention limits face-to-face interactions in the classroom. In-person training is difficult at this time due to the costs and the danger of having staff in a classroom for an extended length of time.
While in-person training may be limited, this brings about the opportunity to virtually educate employees and volunteers about appropriate COVID-19 safety measures. Municipalities including Surrey, North Vancouver, and Richmond have worked with The W Group to take on the challenge of educating without holding in-person classroom-based training.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has introduced limitations to workers across the country. In the spirit of perseverance, we are all doing what we can to operate at the best of our abilities while taking proper precautions. As a safety precaution managers/supervisors in the City of Richmond needed to deliver critical information on its Pandemic Exposure Control Program (ECP) to employees at their worksites. Ironically, delivering information about the pandemic became a struggle because of the pandemic.
The Surrey Animal Resource Centre facilitates pet care through adoption, donation, and volunteer work. In general, day to day operations call for in-person contact between staff and prospective pet parents.
COVID-19 safety measures including physical distancing restricted residents from entering the facility to complete manual paperwork. These mandatory limitations discouraged residents from wanting to adopt or place a pet up for adoption. As a result, the intake of pets needing adoption services unfortunately plummeted.
