Coronavirus: Checklist for retailers in Canada

January 28, 2020

January 30, 2020

Retailers in Canada should be aware of the up-to-date medical situation, of preventive measures and of any legal considerations that may arise from the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

Retail Council of Canada (RCC) is in regular contact with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Health Canada and provincial health authorities to monitor the situation and will update members as the situation evolves. RCC will also be instituting a standing weekly call, to which members may dial-in, on which we will provide the latest information about the disease, the number of regional instances and any suggested best practices emanating from public health authorities. 

RCC has also prepared a checklist for RCC members to help them plan strategies for managing the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

Please check this page regularly for additional updates and resources.
