Covid-19 Update #13: MGEU Mandates masks at all in-person meetings, meetings in Area 2 & 3 under review
Aug 21, 2020
Due to the latest public health recommendations, MGEU members will be required to wear masks during all in-person meetings. Masks will be made available at a meeting if required.
The new colour-coded COVID scale recently implemented by the Province also caps gatherings in the Prairie Mountain Health region to no more than ten people. As such, MGEU's in-person meetings in Area 2 and Area 3 are now under review.
For those attending Local meetings in person, we continue to ask that you follow provincial public health orders and guidance on physical distancing, as well as proper cough/sneezing and hand washing practices. Any staff or members who are experiencing symptoms or meet provincial criteria for self-isolation should not attend a union meeting or visit an MGEU office.
Members are also asked not to arrive at an MGEU office or meeting more than five minutes early for the scheduled time. This will reduce the number of people congregating outside a meeting room door. We ask that all members review this protocol before attending an in-person meeting.
The MGEU Resource Centre continues to take calls and emails from members. If you have a question, please contact us Monday – Friday, 8am-6pm.
If you require any additional information about meetings or member services during the pandemic, please contact us.
