Infection Prevention & Control for Businesses

The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is most commonly spread from an infected person through:

  • close, prolonged personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
  • respiratory droplets generated when you cough or sneeze
  • touching something contaminated with the virus, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands
  • overcrowding and close, prolonged contact in a poorly ventilated indoor space where physical distancing and masking is not in place

Understanding how COVID-19 spreads means that workplaces can take measures known to reduce spread to help protect staff and patrons. The information below can help businesses and employers to identify the infection prevention and control measures to put in place.
