New COVID-19 Obligations in Place for Toronto Workplaces
January 5, 2021
The City of Toronto’s Public Health unit has issued a Letter of Instruction to all employers in the City permitted to be open under the Reopening Ontario Act. The Letter requires every employer to take additional measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The physical measures reiterate public health guidance currently in place for Ontario workplaces. These include regular sanitizing, distancing, HVAC review, physical barriers, etc. However, there are some new reporting and other measures of note, identified below.
To the extent any measure conflicts with other applicable Provincial legislation or directive, the Provincial requirement prevails. If a conflict does not exist, the measures in the Letter are in addition to any applicable Provincial requirement.
