As of November 23, 2020, staff are also required to complete daily self-assessment health checks. These health checks and a Provincial Health Order mandate and require staff to review and sign off on a list of symptoms and potential exposure questions. 

Doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19

As a community taking the necessary steps to slow the spread of COVID-19, we ask that you do not come in branch unless you absolutely need to or if you're experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

Following BC health guidelines and the co-operative model, here are some of the ways SASCU is protecting our staff and members. We've:

  • required staff to fill out a daily, self-assessment document upon entering the building before commencing their work day
  • limited face-to-face appointments; advisor appointments can be done by phone, video chat, or email
  • enhanced cleanings of all staff and member areas,
  • increased availability of hand sanitizers for staff and public,
  • installed plexiglass at service counters,
  • practise social distancing between open counters and amongst staff,
  • directed self-isolation to staff per health authority recommendations,
  • limited capacities in all locations
  • and let our staff and members know that we are here for them by offering support resources.
