The Ontario Government is asking businesses to help stop of the spread of COVID-19 by closing non-essential workplaces, and that the workplaces that remain open implement measures to protect the health and safety of their employees and the public.
If you operate a non-essential business, you can continue to operate if your staff can work remotely from home.
You must close your workplace location from March 25 to April 7, 2020. This may be extended if we need to continue to manage the effects of COVID-19.
Learn about the measures the federal government has put in place to support workers and businesses in Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan.
If you have questions about what will be open or impacts to your business or employment call the 'Stop The Spread Business Information Line' at 1-888-444-3659. Help is available from Monday - Sunday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
