In Prince Edward Island and across Canada, as well as globally, several major decisions regarding closures and operational reductions of schools, universities, government, retail and travel, illustrate the urgency of the COVID-19 threat to public health. With increasing measures at the Provincial and Federal level to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 (“flatten the curve”) Engineers PEI has assessed operations and identified several measures that can reduce risk to internal and external stakeholders by decreasing the number of interactions where inadvertent spread could occur.

 

Until further notice:

1. The Engineers PEI office will be closed to visitors (members, volunteers, the public). The phone number will direct callers to send emails to Kim Levesque at info@engineerspei.com.  Any critical business activities with visitors during this period will be executed through email or virtual meetings (teleconference or videoconference).

2. The office will still be open for Kim and Jim who can be reached by email.

3. All planned activities have been postponed or cancelled until further notice (e.g. networking or social events, professional development and non-critical committee meetings).

 

Engineers PEI intends to adjust and update our action plan as needed to suit the current government and health care professional recommendations to reduce the spread and threat of COVID-19.
