03/13/20: COVID-19 and Constituency Office Hours

Posted in: , ,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the Vancouver Fairview constituency office will be closed to the public from Friday March 13th until further notice.

Constituency staff will be working remotely and can be reached via email or phone 10am – 4pm, Monday through Friday. We will have full access to phone services, so please leave a message if we do not pick and we will call you back.

Phone: 604 775 2453 | Email: George.heyman.MLA@leg.bc.ca

We are monitoring the situation closely and will use current advice for public health best practices as it becomes available. While this is not our preferred way to operate our constituency office, we must do what is best for the health of our staff and community.

I also want to make sure you have access to the latest provincial health information about COVID-19.

If you are feeling unwell, the BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool will help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for COVID-19: https://covid19.thrive.health/

If you have medical related questions you can call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 toll-free in B.C., or for the deaf and hard of hearing, call 7-1-1. Translation services are available in more than 130 languages.

Non-medical information about COVID-19 including the latest information on travel recommendations and social distancing. Information is available in more than 110 languages, 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Pacific Standard Time at 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319) or via text message at 604-630-0300.

Thank you for your understanding.
