Dear AARO Members:

You are now required to screen all employees and visitors in your workplace.

Ontario government has amended O. Reg 364/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 3 under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020, to tighten public health measures in response to the recent rise in cases of COVID-19.

The new Screening tool called “COVID-19 Screening Tool for Workplaces (Businesses and Organizations)” now requires employers to conduct screening for COVID-19 using questions from the new  screening tool issued by the Ontario Ministry of Health. The Regulation was made on September 25, 2020, and is in effect.

Any questions please contact the AARO office.

Sincerely,
Diane Freeman
AARO Executive Director
