As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, employers must prepare the workforce for a second wave of COVID-19.
Effective July 7, 2020, Ottawa followed the lead of Kingston and Toronto by mandating the use of masks in public indoor spaces. Many other municipalities across Ontario have instituted similar rules (or seem to be headed in that direction).
For safety compliance, employers must ensure that all current safety legislation is followed as per the most recent updates. This includes when and if the region of your workplace will require masks to be worn in retail and commercial buildings.
