Anyone who received their first COVID-19 immunization prior to March 10 are reminded that their second dose appointment has been cancelled and will be rebooked later.
Second doses are now being given 16 weeks after the first dose as recommended by the National Advisory Committee for Immunization. This allows Ontario to maximize the number of people who can benefit from the strong protection provided by the first dose.
More information about how to book the second dose appointment will be shared in early May. To learn more about COVID-19 and the immunization roll out, please see www.simcoemuskokahealth.org/Topics/COVID-19

“to be clear, the new screening requirement does not include temperature testing and does not apply to customers or patrons of businesses that serve the public directly (for example: retailers and hospitality).

Prior to the amendment, pre-entry screening was not mandatory for all workplaces but it is now.

Employers should:

Appoint a coordinator who will be responsible for tracking latest developments, reviewing guidance from government, and acting as a point of contact for concerned employees.

Develop and communicate health and safety procedures to minimize the risk of infection in the workplace.

Be mindful of potential exposure to liability arising out of privacy, human rights, and employment law concerns when developing screening and other preventative measures; this includes taking precautions to prevent harassment in the workplace.
