New COVID Screening required in Ontario workplaces

Last week Ontario added changes for Ontario employers to consider that are returning employees to the workplace.

They have provided information and a screening tool to make it easier for employers.

“Workplaces should implement this screening for any workers or essential visitors entering the work environment. This does not include patrons entering a workplace (e.g., customers entering a grocery store, restaurant, bar or other food or drink establishment). It also excludes emergency services or other first responders entering a workplace for emergency purposes. Further, essential workers who travel outside for Canada for work purposes should not be excluded entry on this basis alone.”
