NEW MASKING IN CKL'S WORKPLACES AND BUSINESSES!!!! MUST BE WORN BY EVERYBODY IF NO SOCIAL DISTANCE OR BARRIER.

CKL remains in the Green zone (Standard Measures), according to the Ontario government.

However, very recently the Green status was changed.

Previously, in a workplace, for example, masks were not required among staff and workers not within a public area of the business or workplace.

Now, however, that has changed.

Now, if staff/workers are performing tasks indoors that require them to be less than two metres from an unmasked or improperly masked individual without a barrier (e.g. Plexiglass, partition, wall), appropriate Personal Protective Equipment must be worn, including proper protection for eyes, nose and mouth.

At a minimum, this would include a medical mask and eye protection.  

So, whether in a “public area” or not within your workplace or business, EVERYONE must now be wearing masks when within six feet of one another.

This may mean re-arranging work stations, consider returning to work-from-home arrangements and changes to WFH protocols.
