Update: Self-Isolation for Non-Health Care Workers

With respect to self-isolation protocols for non-Health Care Workers and those working in critical services travelling in and out of a travel restricted area, generally speaking, if staff are using the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for the type of exposure, they would not have to self-isolate. Given the variability of work settings, it is the responsibility of the employer to establish appropriate PPE requirements for their employees. They would however be expected to self-monitor.

Self-monitoring will be required as long as COVID-19 is circulating. This is especially important when living in an area with known transmission and for at least 14 days when leaving an area of known transmission. Aligned with general guidance to stay home when sick, everyone should self-isolate as soon as they start feeling unwell to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any infectious disease, and call 811. Staff who may have had an exposure with appropriate PPE, should be self-monitoring for the duration of their work and for 14 days following the last contact.

Self Monitoring Fact Sheet

If there is an exposure, public health will follow up and assess the type of exposure and provide direction specific to the situation. An exposure of any kind will trigger engagement with public health. The connection with local public health will guide next steps.
