More restrictions related to workplaces in Toronto are expected to be announced Monday afternoon.
Last week, Toronto Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Eileen de Villa said more measures will be put in place soon to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Monday morning, Toronto Mayor John Tory explained that the new rules will make employers more accountable.
“It will really be more about imposing more safety requirements, but even more so, reporting requirements on workplaces, so that when there’s an outbreak, there’s a greater requirement to report it. There will be more public reporting and transparency. This is on the theory that information is power and information is power for the public and also more importantly, for the workers themselves,” Mayor Tory told CP24.
Under the current lockdown, employees in Toronto who work inside are required to wear masks.
