HiVE Member Return Plan – COVID-19
Last updated: November 20th, 2020
Hello bees! We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to the HiVE when you’re ready.
In anticipation of this, we’ve developed a health and safety plan that reflects leading practice from WorkSafe BC and BC Centre for Disease Control, as well as your feedback provided to us regarding your health and safety concerns at the HiVE.
Note from Nov. 20, 2020: Masks are now mandatory in all workspace common areas, as per the advice of Dr. Bonnie Henry. Please ensure you are wearing a mask whenever you step away from your workstation.
- Please continue to follow provincial health advice as per BC’s Restart Plan and BC Centre for Disease Control
- Employers are asked develop Safety Plans for your staff per WorkSafe BC
- Do not enter the HiVE if you feel unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms. We advise you to conduct a COVID-19 self-assessment and follow the guidance before returning.
- Maintain 2 meters social distancing in the space (180 honeybees’ length apart, or imagine Ryan Reynolds lying on the ground between you and another person)
- No gatherings of more than 20 people
- Before returning, acknowledge that you have read this Member Return Plan in full and commit to doing your part to keep the HiVE safe!
What’s Expected Of You?
- Share the responsibility of keeping the space clean and safe for everyone.
- Disinfectant spray, paper towels are provided throughout the space
- Wash your hands before and after using high-touch surfaces
- Sanitize high-touch surfaces after use: hot desks, door handles, printer keypad, table tops, coffee machine, fridge
- Everyone has different levels of comfort and susceptibility to health risks. We ask that all members do your best to care for your peers and make each other feel safe.
- Wear a mask in common areas: entrance way, kitchen, lounges. You are required to wear a mask whenever you leave your desk space.
- Be mindful of your movement in the space. Please refrain from unnecessarily traveling away from your desk area.
- Many of our previous common areas are now closed to prevent gathering indoors. But that doesn’t mean the HiVE community aspect is gone! We encourage members to communicate via the HiVE Slack channel and coordinate lunch outside (eg. at Victory Square park) where possible so you can socially distance and enjoy each other’s company. Virtual member hangouts (eg. Thirsty Thursday) are also happening via Zoom.

What Happens If We Have A Positive Case At The HiVE?
- Please let us know ASAP so we can reach out to the community and alert people who were in the space. We will respect your privacy.
- The HiVE will:
- Engage Public Health protocols
- Contact individuals that might have been exposed – members and visitors
- Do a deep clean and sanitization of the space
