Ontario’s new COVID-19 restrictions

Ontario’s new COVID-19 restrictions

Starting Thursday at 12:01 a.m. Ontario businesses will have new restrictions.  Here’s how these new restrictions will apply to Ontario businesses in the sporting arms category.

RETAIL SECTOR
1. Non-essential retail stores can only operate between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
2. Non-essential retail stores can only offer curb-side pick-up, delivery and mail order.
3. Businesses must ensure any employee who can work from home do so.
4. Masks remain mandatory indoors at open businesses or organizations.
MANUFACTURING/DISTRIBUTION SECTOR
1. Businesses must ensure any employee who can work from home do so.
2.  The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development is taking additional steps to protect workers with the launch of the “Stay Safe All Day” campaign, focusing workplace inspections in areas of high transmission, including break rooms, and providing new educational materials to employers to promote safe behaviour before, during and after work.
Even though businesses can offer curb-side pick-up, the new restrictions also include a strict stay-at-home order for consumers who are only allowed to leave their homes for essential purposes like going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or essential work. This order does not allow for curb-side pick-up of non-essential goods or services.
CSAAA has requested clarification with respect to curb-side pick-up customers and will update our members as soon as possible.
