What to do if someone working on your farm tests positive for COVID-19:

Step 1: Collect some background information (i.e. When was the last time they were at work? When did you receive a confirmed positive test report?)
Step 2: Contact your local public health unit
Step 3: Follow public health direction
Step 4: Inform any workers who may have been exposed
Step 5: Report to Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development within 4 days and WSIB within 3 days of receving notification of illness
Step 6: Who else do I need to notify? (i.e veterinarians, feed companies, field reps/auditors, etc.)

For the full guide and detailed information, please read this full document provided by OMAFRA.
