The Canadian Press noticed the Ontario government plans to implement a new set of COVID-19 policies for education workers and certain healthcare workers. These workers will either have to be fully vaccinated or undergo regular COVID-19 tests. This decision was approved by the cabinet on Monday, according to a senior government source.
Today, Ontario’s top doctor is expected to make the announcement and reveal the details of the new policies. The policies will be comparable to the one that is in place in Ontario’s long-term care homes. The staff at healthcare facilities must show proof of full immunization or a medical reason for not being vaccinated.
People who choose not to get a shot will have to complete an education session based on COVID-19 vaccination and will undergo routine tests for the virus before entering the workplace. The health-care policies will take effect on September 7. The Ministry of Education may also introduce a similar policy for employees at all publicly funded school boards and licensed child-care settings.
