  • Email

 

Resources and signage from APH and provincial associations are provided by sector to prevent COVID-19 in the workplace.

 

For additional sector-specific health and safety measures to protect workers and customers, review provincial guidance documents from the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development and provincial health and safety associations (Government of Ontario). 

 

Ontario has released a guide on how to develop your COVID-19 workplace safety plan. This will help employers create a safer working environment for employees during COVID-19. It will help prepare you to put controls into place to make the workplace safer.

 

 

 

About Face Coverings

 

Issued July 10, 2020, Algoma Public Health's Medical Officer provided instructions for face coverings that were effective July 17, 2020.

 

Businesses/organization will be required to adopt a policy that requires all members of the public and employees who enter or remain in an enclosed public space to wear a mask or face covering that covers their mouth, nose and chin without gaping.
