Following our first positive case, we want to reinforce that the actions we take are being taken in accordance with guidance from the Public Health Unit. We have since learned of an additional case with a third-party contractor on site in the Materials Handling and Logistics business unit. Response actions have and continue to be taken in both cases. When we learn of a case, actions are taken quickly and in accordance with best practices, including immediately informing team members and conducting a thorough disinfectant clean of the area. More information is also shared at the business unit level for those that need to know and where others may need to take additional precautions.
Our company Physician, Dr. Mike Pysklywec, also wanted to share the following with regards to our first cases:
“COVID-19 cases among Dofasco employees are inevitable during a pandemic. I know this is anxiety-provoking and it should highlight the need for infectious precautions.
