COVID

To keep our staff, volunteers, Board members and visitors safe during the COVID pandemic, the following protocols are in effect:

  1. Staff will work from their individual workstations, separated by at least 6 feet.
  2. Staff are asked to wash their hands frequently.
  3. It is not mandatory for staff to wear masks, while at their desks, but they are welcome to do so if the wish.
  4. Equipment in common (e.g. the printer and filing cabinet) will be sanitized using disinfectant wipes at least twice daily.
  5. The kitchen counter, kitchen table, taps, appliances and door handles will be sanitized at least once daily (and more often depending on use).
  6. No more than 2 people will use the kitchen at one time.
  7. Staff are asked to sanitize their desk, telephone and the cover of their laptop at the end of each day.
  8. Building visitors must wear masks and maintain 6-foot social distancing.
  9. The Board Room table, chairs, light switch and door handles will be sanitized using disinfectant wipes before and after each group meeting.
  10. Use of the Board Room will be limited to 3 people at any one time in order to maintain 6-foot social distancing.
  11. Bottles of hand sanitizer will be in place at each workstation, on the Board Room table and kitchen table.
  12. Disposable masks are available at no charge for anyone wanting or needing a mask.
  13. All Geopark meetings will be required to adhere to the 6-foot social distancing regulation wherever they are held. If this is not possible, then the meeting will be held by Zoom and this can be arranged through the office.
  14. Anyone entering Nova Scotia from New Brunswick or Newfoundland & Labrador must follow the NS guidelines about self-isolation.
  15. Anyone with COVID-type symptoms is asked to avoid visiting the Geopark office at this time.
  16. Any staff with COVID symptoms will be working from home and be required to take a COVID test and follow the recommendations of the Medical Officer of Health.

What is a Geopark?

A Geopark is a designation that attracts tourists wishing to explore the connections between geology, local communities, culture, and nature. Geoparks are designed to promote tourism and celebrate a region’s uniqueness, and do not prohibit any land use.
