Tory urging all employers to ‘do the right thing’ and follow new measures

Toronto Mayor John Tory announced new workplace measures during the city’s Monday COVID-19 briefing, while 974 new confirmed cases were reported.

Some of the measures include providing sick leave benefits and increasing workplace inspections.

Dr. Eileen De Villa also confirmed the city would publish more details every Thursday about where COVID-19 is spreading in workplaces — though she stressed workers’ privacy would be ensured.

“With more infection prevention and control measures, with more distance and clearer lines of accountability, there is greater capacity to manage public health while businesses operate in the pandemic,” De Villa said.

“Distance will produce results.”

The city has been under the province’s grey-lockdown zone since Nov. 23. If provincial lockdown restrictions are lifted for southern Ontario later this month, Toronto will have been locked down for 60 days.

Under the current lockdown measures, employees in Toronto who work indoors are required to wear masks.
