April 2, 2020 Update

Dear Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness Members and Partners,

Please find attached the most up-to-date Greater Victoria COVID-19 Vulnerable Populations Response Plan model that we are currently working on.

The Greater Victoria COVID-19 Vulnerable Populations Response Plan is a living and emerging plan. We continue to follow and implement the guidelines of Dr. Bonnie Henry, the World Health Organization (WHO), and Federal, Provincial, and Municipal government recommendations towards taking appropriate precautions regarding our daily work, planned community gatherings, and places where transmission may occur.

The Coalition has been actively involved in working with our leadership team of the City of Victoria, Island Health, BC Housing, CRD and the Coalition of which we are ALL members and partners!

As we work together during these uncertain times, we encourage everyone to find community in innovative ways and to show compassion and care for others. Thank you to all of the service providers and staff throughout the region who are providing exceptional care for our most vulnerable populations.
