The government of Canada’s Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has put together a comprehensive tip sheet summarizing the COVID-19 protocols that should be put in place in the agricultural sector. The tip sheet provides detailed guidelines and practical examples on the following aspects:
- Isolation period for temporary foreign workers
- Residence recommendations
- Worker transport protocol
- Site Management
- Team Management
Provincial governments in Ontario and Quebec have also released specific health and safety guidelines for producers.
