Huron Perth Public Health has been notified that under their Symptoms, Screening & Testing Resources the Ministry of Health has changed the COVID-19 Screening Tool for Workplaces (Businesses & Organizations).
This guidance document has been replaced with two separate documents/online tools issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health:
• COVID-19 Screening Tool for Workplaces (worker & employee screening)
• COVID-19 Screening Tool for Workplaces (patron screening)
Changes to the screening tool include the addition of certain symptoms, as well as a separate screening tool for individuals who are under the age of 18.
The person responsible for a business or organization that is permitted to be open under O. Reg. 82/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 1 must screen workers for COVID-19 before they go to work or start their shift each day. Additionally, businesses and organizations that are permitted customers at this time, must at minimum be passively screening patrons, however, active screening of customers prior to entry is considered a best practice.
