Plan for how workers will maintain physical distance during emergency evacuations. Conduct drills to make sure workers are following the new procedure. Implement these controls to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in the workplace. Focus on physical or equipment changes or upgrades to protect workers and the public. Could language barriers impact the ability of workers to understand and follow the instructions or control measures? Evaluate your workforce and adjust your communications to make sure your workers understand.
Some of the information will also be useful for workers and visitors. I am an internationally trained medical graduate with over 10years experience in health care. Deseronto encourages social distancing measures as a way to minimize COVID-19 transmission in the community. This means minimizing close contact with others during the peak of this outbreak. As of March 16, 2020 Town Council has made the decision to suspend Transit services effective midnight of Wednesday, March 18th in order to allow users to find alternate arrangements. This declaration will enact the Municipal Emergency Plan and will provide the Town of Deseronto with all options available to protect the safety of individuals and families living within our community. This action is in alignment with our County, Province and other regional Municipalities, as we show solidarity in the fight against COVID-19.

TORONTO — The holidays are going to look a little different this year due to COVID-19. The ROA came into force on July 24, 2020 to ensure important measures remained in place after the provincial declared emergency came to an end. Ontario is ordering a Provincewide Shutdown requiring Ontarians to stay at home as much as possible to stop the spread of #COVID19. These measures will protect health system capacity and save lives by breaking the current trend of COVID-19 transmission. Dentists may continue to see patients for emergency and non-emergency appointments. Members of the public are only also permitted to enter a shopping mall that houses a dental office or pharmacy. While intra-provincial travel is not recommended, courier, postal, shipping, moving, and delivery services remain open, according to the government.

From cnn” “84 million displaced people, 26.6 million refugees While the Russian attack of Ukraine and the unexpected flood of refugees has shocked the global community, the worldwide problem of displaced people is not new. I’ve posted before that one soon will receive jail time for harming a tree. An awful lot of people today have a cleaning lady at least once a month. Several hundred years ago most people would build their own house and grow their own food and make their own cloths. Slowly they started to sell some of their food or other products to get money to buy things they could not make themselves. If you don’t have enough room to plant 3 trees you must donate those trees to the city. The future may be brighter though, if technology allows for people to earn sufficiently without having to all pile into a big city. I am not sure if anyone pays attention to the food prices at the grocery stores, literally skyrocketing. Canadians are starting to feel like they have nothing to lose, the reality is very sad. Even though prices are still up, listings down, and people desperate to buy while nothing is getting built, we can now finally..
Prices haven’t come down yet, and we have predicting it for the past fifteen years, but we have every reason to believe we are now correct. Our long history of being horribly incorrect is not something you should be concerned about. Gas at $3 to 4 a liter, all other energy costs up at least 50% and all you food costs double. Insofar as I can make out, ‘affordable’ housing has long since ceased to exist anywhere in the GTA or YVR areas of Canada. The great exodus during Covid ensured housing prices in many areas jumped substantially, pricing out those whose household incomes fell into the lower end of the economic scale. The impact was especially severe in previously affordable exurban/rural locales, where the housing supply was limited even before the deluge of newcomers. But the Scandinavian countries used to have balanced budgets pre-covid. If they can subsidize their citizens without creating mountains of public debt, good for them. Oh, by the way, a new report from Capital Economics says Canadian real estate is pooched. Central bank rate hikes – now started and 100% certain to continue – on their own will bring consequences. The LNDPers will also be targeting REITs which own residential units. Some of the best LLs in Canada are the institutional guys who provide stable, long-term rental housing and have deep pockets to maintain buildings to a far better standard than the mom-&-pops. But in the lexicon of the left, corporate ownership of any residential real estate is bad, so the handcuffs are coming out. Today you can buy a condo or a house for speculation or rental with a 20% down payment and finance everything. People with existing real estate equity can borrow against it for the deposit, then mortgage the rest. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. People arriving from outside of Nunavut are being told to self-isolate for a “mandatory” 14 days upon arrival, and non-essential visitors have been asked to stay out of the region. Public gatherings of any size are prohibited, and playgrounds and municipal parks have been ordered closed. Bars have been ordered closed, and restaurants have been limited to takeout only, with no more than 10 people in a line. On March 21, the government of the Northwest Territories banned non-essential travel in and out of the region. Residents returning to the territory are being asked to self-isolate in Yellowknife, Fort Smith, Hay River or Inuvik.

Over the past week, there has been a concerning increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties . As recently as the 1960’s most pre-school childcare was provided by mothers directly with no cash exchange involved. The government of Yukon has declared a public health emergency in relation to COVID-19. The territory reported its first confirmed cases of the new coronavirus on March 22. Newfoundland and Labrador has declared a public health emergency, ordering anyone crossing its borders to self-isolate for two weeks — even if they’re coming from another Canadian province. New Brunswick declared a state of emergency on March 19, ordering any non-essential services to close. For health, this includes emergency dental care, emergency optometry services, pharmacies and selected physical and occupational therapy settings, depending on the client. Non-essential services include gyms, casinos, bingo halls and fitness centres. On April 3, Premier Doug Ford announced changes to the original list of essential services. All “industrial construction” was removed from the list, with only essential infrastructure-related projects will proceed. No new residential construction will be allowed to take place under the order.

All food and drink establishments must seat no more than 5 people together at a table. All food and drink establishments must close to the public between 12 a.m. And 5 a.m., with limited exceptions (e.g. to pick up or pay for a takeout order). The Russians are making slow, steady gains on nearly every front and methodically destroying the operational component of the Ukr army. And it appears that Zelensky has fled to Poland last week, so in reality the Ukrainian state security services are the defacto leadership of the country. I’m wondering what the announcement of the $5B E/V battery factory employing 3200 will do to the Windsor housing market two-three years from now? Add to this the projected economic expansion due to the opening of the Gordie Howe bridge around the same time. The future for economic expansion looks real good in the coming years. Thats why I believed Putin when he said that Nato had to sign on that the Ukraine would never become a part of Nato & would be a non-aligned, non-militarized buffer state; or else he would “wreck” the country. I believed him when he said that Russia had just gone through 70 years of what the west is going through now. I believe that western democracy defined by inalienable rights & unlimited personal freedom morphing into universalism “globalism” is destroying us.
Saskatchewan to send patients to Alberta for privatized surgery; won’t pay for travel
The Ontario government is supporting small businesses like our local restaurants with a plan to make $300 million available to help them with fixed costs, including property taxes, hydro and natural gas bills. “The latest modelling data shows that Ontario is in a crisis and, with the current trends, our hospital ICUs will be overwhelmed in a few short weeks with unthinkable consequences,” said Premier Ford. A sector-specific breakdown of the province’s new public health measures can be foundhere. The government says that religious services, rites or ceremonies, as well as wedding and funeral services, are permitted so long as face coverings are worn and physical distancing can be maintained. Capacity must be capped at 10 people both indoors and outdoors, regardless of the size of the venue.

On March 18, Nunavut’s health minister declared a public health emergency. Non-essential services in the province include libraries, bars and clubs, salons, barbershops, skating rinks, restaurant dining rooms, gyms, some malls and other businesses. Places of worship should also be suspended unless they are essential, the province added.

Grocery stores, shopping centres, health-care facilities, airports, soup kitchens, the legislature and other essential services are not included. There are many considerations that go into a good workplace vaccine policy, Todd said, including how to accommodate workers who choose not to get vaccinated based on grounds protected by human rights legislation. Accommodations could include daily or weekly rapid testing or limited permission to continue working from home. Porter Airlines said Wednesday that when it resumes service next month, workers must be vaccinated or present a negative COVID-19 test and, on Thursday, the city of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission both announced mandatory vaccination policies. February 3, 2022 The Government of Saskatchewan announced it would realign its public health strategy and resources to focus on those at highest risk of severe COVID-19 outcomes. The realignment will focus testing and outbreak management to settings most at risk of severe health outcomes. As Governments and businesses turn their minds toward the recovery and re-opening of the economy, our team is closely monitoring updates from governments across Canada. The following summarizes the recovery and re-opening measures which have been announced to date in each jurisdiction. We will continue to update this summary as further measures are introduced across the country. It is important that mental health resources and support are provided to all workers, including access to an employee assistance program, if available. Intensively clean and disinfect public areas, worker change and break rooms, and administration areas during the shutdown. An appropriate length shutdown will break the chain of transmission between workers and will lower the impact of a prolonged outbreak, consult with local public health authorities for advice. Cancel all entertainment that promote crowds (e.g., concerts magic acts, acrobatic shows). Refer to public health authorities to determine those events can reopen safely. It is essential that we do our part to control the spread of this virus and to continue with the expressed and implemented best practices outlined by our Government and Health officials to ensure the safety of us all. Deseronto, ON – To help protect the health, safety and well-being of our municipality, effective immediately and until further notice, at 4 pm.

The Ontario government is keeping electricity bills low with the Ontario Electricity Rebate , a 33.2% rebate for residents, small businesses & farms starting Nov. 1st. A new holiday web page will be launched shortly to provide more direct and up-to-date guidance on how individuals and families can plan for a safe holiday season. No matter where you live in the province, the safest way to spend the holidays this year is by only celebrating in person with the people you live with and celebrating virtually with everyone else. If you live alone, consider exclusively celebrating with one additional household as a safe way to spend the holidays. While in the hospital, all care partners and visitors must make every reasonable effort to maintain social distancing space and complete hand hygiene frequently. Please remain with the patient you are in the hospital to support and refrain from moving about with in the hospital.
We provide information and support in many areas to help improve the health and well-being of our residents. Together with our communities, we help people become as healthy as they can be. TORONTO ― In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the Ontario government has extended the provincial Declaration of Emergency under s.7.0.7 of theEmergency Management and Civil Protection Actto July 15, 2020. “The holidays are a special time of the year for many people, and while we all want to spend time with family and friends, we must celebrate safely to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Minister Elliott. “With the recent news about several vaccines there’s light at the end of the tunnel. I realize that it won’t be easy, but we must continue to follow public health advice and look for new and creative ways to celebrate this year.” Upon arrival to the hospital, all care partners and visitors will be asked questions about their health and travel history and must pass screening in order to be allowed entry. Care partners and visitors mustwear a maskand comply with any requirements for additional personal protective equipment.Please bring a clean, dry mask from home.

TORONTO – The Ontario government is expanding the number of small businesses that can apply for the Main Street Relief Grant to help offset the costs of purchasing personal protective equipment to cautiously and gradually reopen in parts of the province. Small businesses with 2 to 19 employees in all eligible sectors – expanded from 2-9 employees – including those in the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector, can now apply for up to $1,000 in financial support. The expansion is being made as more parts of the province enter thestrengthened COVID-19 Response Framework, which allows for the gradual and safe reopening of in-store shopping at non-essential retail stores. The territory’s chief public health officer has also advised that all gatherings, regardless of the size, should be cancelled. Working in a gaming and gambling establishment exposes workers to many of the above situations. COVID-19 transmission during these activities depends on the setting, the number of people, physical proximity, duration and type of interactions, and the effectiveness of health and safety measures put in place. Someemergency ordersthat were previously in place under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, will continue under the new act. This includes orders related to labour redeployment in long-term care and retirement homes, stages of reopening, compliance with public health advice and gatherings. “I know there are many people looking forward to their traditional family celebrations at this time of year, but to keep your loved ones safe, traditions will have to be adjusted,” said Premier Ford. “We’re asking everyone to please stick to your own household when celebrating. Avoid big holiday parties or large family dinners to help us stop the spread of this deadly virus. By following this public health advice, we can all have a safe and fun holiday season.” Yukon’s chief medical health officer, Dr. Brendan Hanley, has recommended against non-essential travel into and out of Yukon. Hanley says everyone who comes to the territory from outside Yukon is required to self-isolate for 14 days, even if they didn’t travel outside Canada. Today, the Medical Officer of Health announced a number of public health measures to be introduced when the City of Toronto is moved by the Province of Ontario into the provincial COVID-19 response framework on November 14. If a worker or visitor informs you of a positive COVID-19 test result, report it to your local public health authority and cooperate with any contact tracing efforts. You may also be required to inform workers who might been exposed unless that is the responsibility of your public health authority. Advise all those that were potentially exposed to carefully monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms. Workers who do not pass the screening should contact their supervisor. The supervisor should instruct them to stay home and monitor themselves for symptoms. Suggest that they contact their health care provider or local public health authority if they develop symptoms or symptoms worsen. The Trenval Board of Directors has committed an additional $400,000 in business financing as a second phase to help financially stabilize existing and future loan clients who do not qualify for any existing support. Phase II “Recovery” loans open today to a maximum of $20,000 and are for fixed costs up to six months to assist local businesses during these unprecedented times. The Chief Medical Officer of Health and other public health experts continue to closely monitor the evolving situation across the province to advise if and when public health measures or restrictions should be adjusted or tightened.

Spoke with the dentist today and they think the pending coversge will cover basic dental for those not on current dental plans. The technician told me in the 70s she had basic dental and it was also good for seniors and people with no work plans. The PM played the only viable card he had and formed a Liberal Democratic alliance. At for one term and dissolves due to inviting or the crisis of the day. Most people are priced out in this domain, but it doesn’t matter because the incredible lack of supply will ensure only those that can afford homes will continue to buy. Essentially the damage to the housing market i.e. whopper housing bubble is already done. The Fed has made clear that rate hikes will happen 6 more times this year with the chance of .5’ers in the mix. 3% mortgages today will be 5% by year’s end with the government discouraging reckless over extension which of course, comes way too late, a theme oft noted here on Greater Fool. Typically, according to APTN, Nunavut taxi drivers are permitted to service more than one customer at a time. The province hasn’t declared a formal state of emergency, but Health Minister John Haggie said it’s something the government will consider if it finds itself unable to use existing health legislation to take the measures it deems necessary to stop COVID-19. These businesses must also be disinfected and cleaned at least twice a day. Restaurants are also permitted to serve alcohol with the purchase of a meal. The government of Alberta also declared a state of emergency in response to COVID-19, banning mass gatherings of more than 50 people. Only grocery stores, drugstores and service stations will remain open. Restaurant takeout and delivery services also remain open, as well as drive-thru services. Gas stations, pharmacies, restaurant takeout facilities and food delivery services will also be open. On Tuesday afternoon, Premier Jason Kenney declared a state of public emergency because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The City initially requested one additional week to prepare and monitor COVID-19 trends before being moved to the Orange – Restrict category. After carefully examining the situation, City officials determined Toronto requires strengthened protections and guidance for high-risk sectors and activities. Dr. de Villa’s recommendations come as the city sees its COVID-19 numbers going in the wrong direction. Beyond her recommendation that Toronto be moved into the Red – Control category in the provincial framework, Dr. de Villa introduced a number of directives to help reduce the spread of the virus in our community. Giving a gift that is personalized is an effective recognition strategy. Finding those fun items that you can add personalization to gives a unique touch. Retail locations must reduce their capacity by 50 per cent, as of Christmas Day. She noted this does not mean they can terminate workers’ employment without paying them for a reasonable notice period and also that human rights laws require employers to accommodate people who cite religious or medical reasons for not getting the shot. After considering the issue for months, and in some cases encouraged by government announcements, more employers in both the public and private sectors are unveiling mandatory vaccination policies for workers returning to the office. The Township thanks you for your continued patience throughout these difficult times and it remains our priority to offer professional and courteous service when we’re able.

Train workers on the proper techniques for cleaning and disinfecting equipment such as controls, screens, keyboards, tools, radios, personal devices (e.g., cellphones). Give them supplies and time to disinfect their workstation as necessary. Attempt to operate as a cashless venue (i.e., all services prepaid, online payments, accept credit/tap payment options only), removing cash as a touchpoint between visitors and workers. Continue with safety and informational meetings but avoid gatherings of people where possible. If that option is not possible, gather in small physically distanced groups, preferably outdoors or in large well-ventilated locations. Remind workers to minimize non-essential in-person interactions with people from other households (to decrease potential COVID-19 exposures). Interactions should be kept as few, brief, and at the greatest distance possible . Install physical barriers to separate workers from each other and from visitors where possible and appropriate, make sure not to block aisles or exits (i.e., emergency escape). Barriers should be appropriately sized and positioned to block respiratory droplets from being carried from person to person. Clean and disinfect barriers as needed, multiple times a shift at busy workstations . As gaming and gambling establishments vary in size from small owner-operators to large businesses with many workers and multiple shifts, a variety of tips have been provided.

The survey said that those who admitted to using their employer-supplied device to watch adult content do so for two to four hours in their workday, Wales Online reported, with 20% admitting that they watch for four to eight hours a day. The emergence of remote work saw companies around the world giving staff members their own work gadget so they can set up their personal workspaces inside the comfort of their own homes. But with isolation in play and lack of supervision from managers, it appears that some employees have become too comfortable and took things a little too far in their own workspaces.

Similarly, be aware of your tone…Your colleagues and clients will be a lot more aware of what your tone suggests on a call than in person, in absence of other physical and social cues. Bad television aside, this one highlights your lack of professionalism and valid use of company time. Don’t let yourself get distracted by other non-work activities while at home and on call. So you have screaming kids, misbehaving pooches and yet another work call to jump on.
Post signs throughout facility reminding workers about safe behaviours such as hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, and to follow physical distancing and mask wearing policies. Communicate to workers and visitors all new practices and policies that are in effect in the workplace. Communicate these changes and post credible COVID-19 resources and information at entrances, washrooms, staff rooms, safety boards, and on websites. Train conflict resolution techniques to supervisors that may have to deal with workers and visitors who react aggressively to COVID-19 health measures and organizational changes. Require all workers who are not essential for day to day operations to work from home as often as possible. Modify shared storage areas (e.g., winter footwear, sweaters, coats, PPE). For example, have workers store their personal items in separate lockers or in labelled, sealed bins/bags. Minimize contact for workers reporting to work by simplifying the process as much as possible (e.g., being flexible with clock in/out times, adding additional clock-in stations, key card sign-in, messaging/e-mail, or rollcall by a supervisor). Proper mask wearing reduces the number of viruses released into the surrounding environment by infected individuals. Having physical distancing and mask wearing policies in place and enforced is an effective way to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Evaluate job tasks and minimize close physical contact for as many as possible. For all tasks that require two or more people in close proximity, make sure all workers and visitors are properly wearing a mask and keep the interaction as short as possible. Modify workstations to ensure the greatest possible distance between workers . Focus on workstations that position people close to each other or facing each other. If it is impossible to space people, install barriers between people designed to reduce the transmission of respiratory droplets.
