OHS Canada: Could COVID-19 variants affect your business?
by OHS Canada
In the event of positive cases in the workplace, businesses must comply with their provincial reporting requirements and proceed with contact tracing and virus containment procedures immediately
Coronavirus variants are spreading across Canada and some businesses will be worried about how this might affect them.
Businesses may face further closures as cases increase due to the more contagious strains, and employers could face increased health and safety concerns from staff.
While vaccine programs are only starting throughout the country, it will be a while before the majority of the population is protected from the virus. Businesses will have to continue doing their part in the interest of public health.
