Instructions regarding face coverings

Background

As of Friday, July 17, 2020, all businesses and organizations permitted to open in the Public Health Sudbury & Districts service area must have policies in place to ensure that no person is permitted to enter or remain in an Enclosed Public Space of a business or organization unless they are wearing a face covering. This includes public transit. Learn more about these instructions in our letter to employers (322 KB, PDF).

All persons responsible for a business or organization with enclosed employee spaces (accessed by employees and not accessed by the public) must continue to ensure physical distancing, use face coverings if two metres distance cannot be maintained, screen for symptoms, and promote excellent hand hygiene practices.

Read our orders and enforcement page and workplace toolkit for more information.
