This is not an exhaustive list of the restrictions under the Red Zone. Public Health Sudbury & Districts strongly suggests that you review Ontario Regulation. 263/20: RULES FOR AREAS IN STAGE 2 under Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020, S.O. 2020, c. 17 which can be found at https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/200263.  There may be specific sections that deal directly with your business or organization, however, other requirements for your facility can be found throughout the legislation.

The requirement from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the postage of signage for passive screening is still in place. The Ministry of Health has developed COVID-19 signage questions http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/coronavirus/docs/COVID_19_bus_orgs_question_signage.pdf to support the new requirement for signage to be posted at all entrances for passive screening before entering a business or organization.  Public Health Sudbury & Districts has developed signage which is attached to help you with this requirement. 

For those required to actively screen the public before entrance the Provincial Government’s COVID-19 customer and patron screening tool has been updated to align with the return to the Response Framework and requirement for active screening in specific settings and zones. The tool can be accessed online https://covid-19.ontario.ca/screening/customer/  or downloaded (PDF) https://covid-19.ontario.ca/covid19-cms-assets/2021-02/ENScreening - PatronFeb10v2.pdf  from the Ontario government website for you to use at your entrance.

If you have any questions, please contact PHSD at 705.522.9200, ext. 748.
