COVID-19 Inspection Blitz Planned for Local Businesses in Timmins 

This Friday and Saturday, provincial offences officers from the Multi-Ministry Education and Enforcement Team will be accompanied by City of Timmins by-law enforcement officers to conduct a COVID-19 education and enforcement campaign for local businesses.

The inspection blitz is intended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the public and staff by providing business owners with guidance on how to operate safely during the pandemic and comply with public health requirements under the Reopening Ontario Act. The campaign helps reinforce the efforts made by police, municipal by-law officers, public health inspectors, and multiple Ministry agencies.

In a statement provided by the PHU, the most common areas of non-compliance were identified as improper mask use, lack of employee screening, and improper sanitization. The inspection blitz reinforces the PHU and City of Timmins’ commitment to working with local business to support them in the implementation of public health measures.

Inspection teams will be visiting area grocery stores, restaurants, and convenience stores on June 18 and 19, 2021.
