22 Apr DPRA IS SUPPORTING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ISOLATION HUBS IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The pandemic is having a global impact on individuals, businesses and public agencies, many of which are moving swiftly to respond to the challenges that COVID-19 presents to governments.
DPRA is working directly with various governments to develop protocols for isolation hubs in multiple locations across Canada. In some cases, these hubs support the health and safety of returning travelers, while in other cases these hubs are required at the community level to provide the space and services necessary to respond to the needs of local residents and workers.
We have developed a range of public communications materials as well as a suite of response protocols in support of these hubs. The protocols establish structure and rigour (in terms of infection disease prevention) to support the consistent operation of the isolation hubs while ensuring the needs of hub-residents are met and limiting any potential exposure to COVID-19.
We are also working with clients to adapt their projects, programs, and plans to respond to the impact of COVID-19. We recognize the need to provide prompt and agile services to meet the needs of public sector agencies in this unprecedented situation, and we’re pleased to be able to provide support.
DPRA Canada has taken measures to protect our staff by ensuring that they have what they need to work at home as we continue to support our public sector clients in their responses to COVID-19.
