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
  • Sanitation
  • Site Management
  • Team Management

Provincial governments in Ontario and Quebec have also released specific health and safety guidelines for producers.
