Identify and Detect

Active monitoring must include screening questions and temperature checks of all persons entering your facility. The purpose of this stage is the ensure that anyone experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms will not come into contact with your staff, customers or facility.

  What You Can Do:

  • Regular communication with employees. Newsletters are a great tool to reach all employees and provide reminders of best practice and the latest information
  • Inform employees of the steps taken within the organization and new processes to comply with
  • Ensure employees have the information they need to self-monitor and pre-screen before coming to work
  • Enforce temperature checks for anyone entering your facility

Physical Distancing

Physical distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness. The Government of Canada recommends a distance of 2 meters between you, your coworkers, and customers.  Physical distancing will call for changes in the workplace set up and in activities or interactions.

What You Can Do:

  • Limit the amount of staff within your facility
  • Enforce 2-meter (6 ft) distancing between people
  • Install physical barriers such as plexiglass where distancing is not possible
  • Move team meetings to an electronic method when possible (video calling)
  • Tape off surface areas to ensure proper distance (Board room tables, staff room lunch tables, service counters)
  • Install directional signage and yellow tape arrows on the floor to direct the flow of foot traffic
