sorry! the lanyard guide that might be helpful for staff....
There is a conversation going on across Canada about whether access can be facilitated safely.
Perfect- thanks Paul.
can you be infected by the virus more then once
If you are using a disposable procedural mask to conduct in- person home visits how often should you replace the mask in one day?
I am inquiring about the document that was indicated to be included in the chat for PPEs
with ever changing events, some Health and Safety people at our agency feel that it is not sufficient to just track back 48 hours from point of symptoms (which is what our local public health supports and did with our positive staff). H and S believe there should be reach out for any one who has had contact with the positive person within 7 days. Do you support this as from the HR perspective, we want to be guided by public health and not send mixed messages.
Hi Denise....here it is...if you can't open it, please send me an email and i will send it to you mcicero@oacasorg https://www.publichealthontario.ca/-/media/documents/lanyard-removing-putting-on-ppe.pdf?la=en
Just wondering as to physical distancing when workplaces begin to reopen. Most workplaces have cubicles that are open.
It is expected that Public Health would provide guidelines re: engineering approaches that employers can consider to keep all safe?
Sorry the question should read " Is it expected"
Yes received- Thanks
homemade masks were not recommended from Canada initially and now are being recommended- please comment
what risk assessment should be used to evaluate case by case bases... there are several risk assessment templates.
These consultations and the information is very helpful. Is OACAS archiving these consultations?
We are Dawn
Hi everyone: here is a link to a CBC article that has a video clip of Dr Tam's advice on the issues of homemade masks so you can listen first hand as it has been reported differently in some outlets: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/non-medical-masks-covid-19-spread-1.5523321
here is the CDC fact sheet Dr Salvaterra meantioned : https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
How long do you think it will last???
