Public Advisory

There is a Provincial Order in place, effective October 9th, 2020, mandating the use of face coverings in all public indoor settings across the province, such as businesses, facilities and workplaces, with limited exemptions.  For details, visit the Face Masks and Face Coverings in Ontario. Also view the Grey Bruce Health Unit FAQ for Masks and Face Coverings.

  • Direct employees to websites that support smoke-free living.
     

  • Provide “Second-Hand Smoke” or “Be Smoke-Free” display materials.
     

  • Offer examples of an internal policy that is consistent with municipal by-laws and provincial legislation.
     

  • Provide education and support to employees who want to reduce or quit smoking. 
     

  • Present/provide a business case to employers for implementing a workplace smoke-free policy.
