Ontario is lifting all restrictions on construction as the number of COVID – 19 cases trends downwards.

Sites could resume work yesterday (19 May). Christine Elliott, deputy premier and health minister, said this was because of Ontario’s success in flattening the coronavirus curve. She added that public health experts would monitor construction sites and other workplaces in case they lead to a second spike in cases.

For construction sites, the province has outline numerous best practices to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, including the cleaning of all tools before and after each use, and to conduct meetings outside. Other strict guidelines for construction sites to follow during COVID – 19 include:

  • Staggering start times breaks and lunches.
  • Restricting the number of people on-site and where they are assigned to work.
  • Controlling site movement by limiting the potential for workers to gather, including personnel in material hoists and site trailers.
  • Limiting the number of people who use elevators and hoists at one time.
  • Holding meetings in an outside or large space to enable physical distancing.
  • Limiting unnecessary on-site contact between workers, as well as between workers and outside service providers, and encourage physical distancing in these areas.
