Stricter COVID-19 Measures
Location: 652 Princess St, Kingston and 60 Frederick St, Kitchener
The Provincial Government of Ontario has put in place additional measures as of yesterday. They have issued a State of Emergency and a Stay-at-Home Order coming into effect from Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:01 AM. Our construction sites have been deemed essential and we are allowed to continue our operations at normal capacity. However, the ability to continue to operate will result in increased scrutiny and enforcement from the Ministry of Labour, The Local and Provincial Police services and Local By-law enforcement divisions.
The additional measures from the Government include the requirement of masks or face coverings for all workers in common areas, units and even outdoors. The social / physical distancing requirements are still in place and all workers are required to maintain a distance of 6 ft. (2m) from each other.

For the health and safety of our workers and all personnel present at our site we will be strictly enforcing our update policies. We are making all efforts to stay on top of Government issued regulations of masks, social / physical distancing, hand hygiene and increased sanitization efforts of the common areas. Our updated policy is attached to this safety bulletin updated and any questions and concerns can be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In these difficult times, we are hoping for support and co-operation from all our trade partners, workers, management, consultants and all other stakeholders. The health and safety of our community and stakeholders will be our number 1 priority. We are at a crucial juncture right now in our battle with this virus where your support and co-operation will play a huge part in our operations staying open and protecting our livelihoods.
