If you remain open during the pandemic, there are several steps to take to ensure the safety and well-being of your team members. Above all else, ensure you can follow the social distancing guidelines set out by the Provincial Health Officer. Actively encourage sick employees to stay home, and have sick leave policies that can accommodate them remaining home with no penalty. Encourage hand hygiene—washing with soap and water and using alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.
