Face covering instructions for workplaces

Effective July 8, 2020, all enclosed public spaces including businesses, organizations, and public transit in Sudbury and districts must have policies in place to stop people from entering if they are not wearing a face covering. These instructions (322 KB, PDF) were issued under the authority of the provincial Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (Government of Ontario) to ramp up efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Some people are exempt from wearing a face covering and these individuals are not required to show proof of exemption. Businesses do not have to turn someone away who is exempt. The goal is to ensure the best protection possible (including for those who cannot wear face coverings) until a vaccine or specific treatment are available.

Public Health has developed these resources to help local workplaces and services.
