COVID-19 Screening Tool for Businesses and Organizations

as of June 23, 2021

This screening tool provides advice, recommendations and instructions issued by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health in accordance with subsection 2(3) schedule 1 and Schedule 6 in O. Reg. 82/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 1, and subsections 2(3) of Schedule 1 in O. Reg. 263/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 2 and O. Reg. 364/20: Rules for Areas in Stage 3 made under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020 (ROA).

The person responsible for a business or organization that is permitted to be open must ensure that workers and guests are actively screened for COVID-19 before they go to work or start their shift each day or attend the business as a guest.

This screening tool is not to be used as a clinical assessment tool or intended to take the place of medical advice, diagnosis, treatment or legal advice. In the event of any conflict between this document and any applicable legislation, regulation, or orders or directives issued by the Minister of Health or the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the legislation, order or directive prevails.

The questions in this tool have been defined by the Ministry of Health. These questions can be adapted to meet the communication needs of people with learning, developmental or cognitive disabilities.

This screening tool does not apply to health care settings (including long-term care homes), and some non-health care workplaces (e.g., retirement homes, other congregate living settings, schools and child care) where existing screening requirements and tools are already in place.

Screening is not required for emergency services or other first responders entering a workplace for emergency purposes.

Screening should occur before or immediately upon arrival at the business or workplace. This screening tool can be completed either online or on-site prior to attending. A worker or guest may only enter the workplace or business if they have passed the screening.

Anyone who does not pass screening must not enter the workplace or business and be advised that they should self-isolate, ideally at home, and call their health care provider or Telehealth Ontario (1-866-797-0000) to get advice or an assessment, including if they need a COVID-19 test.
