In light of the increasing case counts here in Thunder Bay and elsewhere across the country, the Thunder Bay & District Health Unit is calling on employers and employees to recommit to following all infection prevention and control measures in order to effectively keep workplaces safe.
This includes making sure that anyone who is not feeling well stays home, even if the symptoms are mild. COVID-19 may feel like “just a cold” but those who continue to go to work potentially expose the workplace to this virus. By staying home, employees protect their co-workers, clients and customers.
All workplaces are urged to take this situation seriously and to ensure that all COVID-19 prevention measures are being followed.
In this morning’s update:
- Active Screening of Employees is Required of All Employers
- Upcoming Risk Assessment Visits at Food Premises
- Mandatory Masks Update
- Updates to Guidance Documents for Food Premises, Personal Service Settings & Places of Worship
