Due to the current global pandemic, we have modified our operating protocols in accordance with Public Health Orders and WorkSafe BC. To ensure the health and safety of our guests and team, we have limited the number of staff and guests on-site at any time to ensure social distancing measures can be met.


Staff have a mandated set of measures to ensure guest and worker safety.

  • All staff are to maintain a six-foot distance from one another whenever possible.

  • Use of shared equipment has been reduced; all shared equipment is to be sterilized after use.

  • All staff have been trained in proper cleaning techniques and use of the required materials.

  • All staff have been offered Personal Protective Equipment and trained in proper usage, following manufacturers’ instructions for use and disposal.

  • All staff must engage in regular hand washing.

  • All staff are subjected to a temperature check before their shift and will be sent home if they display any of the symptoms of COVID-19.


This safety plan is subject to frequent review and update by the Beetbox Health & Safety Committee, and WorkSafe BC. All risks are monitored and noted, and areas of concern addressed.


General Safety for Guests and Staff

    • Should they get tested for COVID-19, they agree to share the results with management.

    • They agree to take a pre-shift health check and that, if they display a fever (37.5˚ body temperature) or other COVID-19 symptoms, they will leave the work premises.
