To ensure the Health and Safety of all staff and visitors during this pandemic, visitor restrictions will be enforced at all CEO Sites until further notice.

All services and interactions provided from the building will be conducted in a contactless manner to the greatest extent possible. If a contactless interaction is not possible, visitors will be asked to wear a mask when interacting with CEO staff.

Only vendors required to repair or replace services or equipment will be allowed entry and will be expected to comply with all health and safety protocols, including contact trace logs.

We thank you for your help in adhering to these restrictions, and preventing the potential spread of COVID-19.

Changing lives, improving our community.
