The worldwide Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is rapidly developing, with media coverage focusing on its public health and societal impact. Employers must also consider the pandemic's impact on the workplace and many are perplexed about what they legally can and should do to respond, particularly given the Ontario government's announcement that the province is ordering all non-essential workplaces to close for 14 days, effective March 24, 2020 at 11:59pm.
