Throughout the pandemic, AOV has been committed to protecting the health and safety of our team and the community. We must all do our part to contain the COVID-19 virus. As such, AOV has implemented a number of measures to protect all stakeholders, including but not limited to:
Employees and visitors must complete a COVID-19 self-assessment prior to entering the premises. Should someone answer yes to any question related to illness or exposure to COVID-19, they mustn’t enter the workplace. They are to return home and be tested for COVID-19.
Anyone who has travelled, or has been in close contact with someone who travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days, cannot enter the workplace or field sites. Inter-provincial travel is discouraged, except for essential purposes.
Masks are required in all shared spaces (including vehicles) and anytime it is not possible to maintain a 2-metre distance between persons.
Employees are regularly reminded of proper hygiene and housekeeping practices.
Daily schedules for cleaning vans and shared equipment are practiced.
Social gatherings and shared foods have been discontinued.
Office employees have the ability and option to work from home, subject to AOV COVID-19 protocols.
