During this pandemic, many strata management companies are under significant pressure in working to maintain services and are implementing enhanced hygiene measures to prevent transmission of COVID-19 and protect the safety of residents in the strata corporations they manage.
RECBC recommends that strata managers prioritize the health and safety needs of strata residents. For residents in strata buildings, this may mean that non-urgent matters will be lower priority, and your strata management company may request that you use email or telephone to communicate with them, rather than in-person communication.
We ask all British Columbia strata owners to have patience as strata management companies focus on protecting health and safety. We recognize the additional pressures on strata managers during this crisis, and we will continue to work with brokerages to help ensure continuity of service in these challenging times.
During this time, strata owners may want to take extra precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Use these resources to help manage risks related to COVID-19.
RECBC’s recommendations for managing challenges and preventing spread of the virus in stratas.
