PEGO Operations and COVID-19 – March 16, 2020
The unprecedented global situation concerning the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is fast-evolving. The health, safety, and well-being of PEGO members, volunteers, and staff is paramount and we continue to actively monitor the situation and take direction from any public health authority (e.g. WHO, Health Canada, Public Health Ontario, Toronto Public Health, etc.).
Effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, PEGO will close its office location until Friday, April 3, 2020 or as the situation dictates. Staff have been asked to work from home—the goal is to minimize service disruption under challenging circumstances.
The Ontario Public Service (OPS) is continuing its operations and we understand that alternate work arrangements are being provided, where feasible. If you have concerns about your work arrangements, please contact the PEGO Office. If you have a particular concern about your workplace, we ask that you bring it to your manager’s attention.
We will continue to provide members with updates, where appropriate. In the meantime, we encourage you to do your part in taking preventative measures to mitigate the risk of exposure and/or infecting others:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
- Sneeze or cough into your sleeve
- Practice social distancing, where appropriate
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- If you are feeling sick and/or are experiencing flu-like symptoms, please stay home
- If you have recently traveled, please self-isolate yourself for 14 days
Please contact the PEGO Office if you have any questions and/or concerns.
