Discussion items:

How are you planning and managing your sites for reopening and recovery?, Is your information architecture changing?, Other topics taking precedence?, Is your content shifting to life after vaccination?

  • Ontario - 3 stage reopening plans, high level pages with links with more details for restrictions (specifically for businesses)
    • Right now focus is what can businesses do and not do?
  • Alberta - Waiting on health officials on what lifting all restrictions will mean
    • in terms of recovery, will be launching in July and will know more soon
  • Northwest Territories - June 21
    • removed self-isolation restrictions for those who are doubly vaccinated, and eased for those who have one vaccination
    • all restrictions being lifted won't be until mid-fall and those are based on vaccination rates across all Canada
  • PEI - at the moment kind of messy because people need to apply for a pass (if vaccinated) and if not vaccinated, you have to self declare (new form on the site) that you will isolate for 8 days and must stop at border for rapid testing
    • in effect as of June 27
    • one of the concerns is Nova Scotia is reopening their borders so if they're coming to PEI to ensure testing and safety
