Career1 wishes to share the following general update from Peel Public Health regarding COVID-19.
The risk of getting COVID-19 in Peel Region and Ontario remains low because the virus is not spreading in the general community due to effective surveillance, and case and contact management. Globally, COVID-19 has been found in several new areas of the world and in some areas, community transmission is occurring. The Ministry of Health has expanded the list of impacted areas beyond mainland China to include South Korea, Hong Kong, Italy, Singapore, Iran and Japan. The Government of Canada has issued COVID-19 travel health advisories for each of these areas.
If you or your family are planning to travel, please consult the Government of Canada website for travel advice and advisories related to COVID-19. If you or your family have recently returned from a trip out of country, please follow the below steps:
Travel to an Impacted Area (Except for Hubei Province in China)
Upon return from a COVID-19 impacted area (currently Mainland China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Italy, Singapore, Iran, and Japan) all travellers are advised to:
- monitor their health for flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, and difficulty breathing) for 14 days upon return
- if flu-like symptoms develop, contact Peel Public Health immediately and refer to Peel Public Health’s guide on how and where to get medical help
You do not need to contact Peel Public Health if you are well.
Travel to Hubei Province in China
If you or your family have returned from Hubei province in China in the last 14 days:
- stay at home and avoid close contact with others, including those in your home, for 14 days after leaving the impacted area AND
- contact Peel Public Health for further instructions and important information
- if you notice flu-like symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing), contact Peel Public Health immediately and refer to Peel Public Health’s guide on how and where to get medical help.
How to Prevent the Spread of Respiratory Viruses
The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other more common viruses is to:
- wash hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose as much as possible
- avoid contact with people who are ill and their items
- cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing; if no tissue is available, then sneeze or cough into the sleeve or arm
- clean and disinfect objects and surfaces regularly
Stay home if ill until your symptoms resolve
Those that have already been assigned are under the direction of the company that has assigned them. Career1 asks the new registrants that have travelled in the past month into countries known to have issues with COVID-19, to return one month later, and if they have not been affected, they may be assigned work.
In addition to this procedure, we also ask our associates to:
- Postpone all non-essential travel to China, Italy, Iran, Korea (North and South) and Vietnam where the risk has been identified and confirmed;
- Encourage employees to not enter the workplace while sick or if they’ve been in contact with someone exhibiting the symptoms, and to seek immediate guidance from their doctor on monitoring and treatment;
- Encourage employees to stay informed by monitoring the latest developments from reliable health organizations like Public Health Ontario, the Ministry of Health (Canada and Ontario), the World Health Organization and others;
- We have placed signs and hand sanitizer in conspicuous areas in our lobby for use of all that enter. In addition, we remind employees to follow strong hygiene practices such as frequent hand-washing, regular disinfection of desks, computer surfaces, and proper cough and sneeze etiquette;
- We also remind our staff of the importance of keeping medical information strictly confidential.
