Employers

The Government of Canada has requested all Canadians to be at home if possible. Employers are requested to support this by assisting employees to work remotely.    

What employers can do

  • Cleaning: Consider increasing routine cleaning practices – if you are cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces once a day, move to twice a day using the products you already use.
  • Space: Consider the density of your business and provide additional space for customers and employees to interact; for example, consider how line ups can be managed so that people are able to put some distance – 1 to 2 metres – between one another.
  • Hand hygiene: Ensure your washrooms remain stocked with soap and consider offering hand sanitizer at entrances.
  • Communication: Show your customers, clients, members, and employees what you are doing to support the efforts to slow transmission of this virus by communicating online and at your place of business.
  • Employees who feel unwell: Support your employees to stay home if they are sick.
