RTO7's Coronavirus Update & Resources

March 5, 2020
On March 3rd, we sent out our first eblast and posted information on the website about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations pertinent to our stakeholders.  Since then, a number of organizations have started sharing information and recommended practices to support businesses through this period.  We are sharing links to that information with you. Some of the information will apply to you and your operation directly and some will be peripheral in nature but useful to know.  
The following links were supplied by Andrew Siegwart, the President of the Blue Mountain Village Association: 
WHO: Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19 (World Health Organization)
WHO: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak
TIAC: Coronavirus - Current Situation
RTO7: RTO7's Coronavirus Update & Resources (great resource to share with small businesses & customer facing storefronts) 
Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit: COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Update for Partners - #6
