As the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic gains momentum, the BSEO issued a statement on Friday strongly recommending that all local employers put in place workplace vaccination policies to protect their workers and the public.

To help them adopt this recommendation, the BSEO issued guidelines for developing and implementing COVID-19 vaccination policies.

Across the province, 795 new cases and five deaths were listed this Friday. More than 73% of these new cases affect people who are not fully immunized or whose vaccination status is unknown.

Ontario has also launched an advertising campaign to list the benefits of vaccination on social media. We are trying to convince young people to receive their doses of the vaccine against COVID-19.
