Essential Workers have additional risks with COVID-19 due to crowded working conditions or working with the public. OHC has prepared information sheets for workers and employers with guidance for preventing hazards at the source and providing protection from exposure to COVID-19. We have also developed an information sheet for Nail Salon Workers as part of our current project with workers in this industry. See the sidebar Information Sheets for Essential Workers for this information, also available translated into a number of different languages, including Hindi, Mandarin, Punjabi, Spanish, Tigrinya, Arabic, Vietnamese and French.

  • Cleaning & Janitorial Workers
  • Grocery Store Workers
  • Meat & Poultry Processing Workers
  • Security Guards
  • Nail Salon Workers

The most updated public health information on the coronavirus (COVID-19) is on the Government of Manitoba’s website.
