What You Need to Know Before Re-Opening Your Business After the Provincewide Shutdown

Businesses in public health unit regions that have returned to the COVID-19 Response Framework must implement active screening of patrons in certain zones. Please refer to What each zone means for information on how this may apply to your business or sector.

Workplaces were already required to screen all workers or visitors entering the work environment.

The following screening tools have been updated to further align with current advice as well as return to the Framework:
  • The COVID-19 worker and employee screening tool can be accessed online or downloaded as a PDF.
  • The COVID -19 customer and patron screening tool can be accessed online or downloaded as a PDF.
Additionally, the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health has developed COVID-19 signage questions to support the new requirement for signage to be posted at all entrances for passive screening before entering a business or organization.

As of Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 12:01 am, the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health and the Grey Bruce Health Units move back to the framework and will no longer be subject to the Stay-at-Home order. 

Simcoe-Muskoka moves to the "Red-Control" zone, while Grey-Bruce moves to the "Yellow-Protect" zone.
