As information about COVID-19 develops, we will continue to refer to the Manitoba Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada for guidance.

Measures for protecting workers from exposure to the novel coronavirus depend on the type of work being performed and exposure risk. This includes potential for interaction with infectious people and contamination of the work environment. Employers should adapt infection control strategies based on a thorough hazard assessment. Appropriate combinations of engineering and administrative controls, safe work practices, and personal protective equipment (PPE) should be used to prevent worker exposures.
