Important Notice for Region of Durham Contractors and Vendors

Please note that the Region of Durham, in keeping with the Province of Ontario’s directive, will continue to require all contractors and vendors serving the Region’s Long Term Care homes, where assigned workers have in-person interaction with Regional employees or the public in the performance of work or enter Regional Long Term Care homes, to wear masks.  When the Region of Durham determines the appropriate time to remove its mandatory masking requirement for Long Term Care homes, notice will be posted with the details. Contractors and vendors required to enter into a Long Term Care home will require screening and COVID-19 swabbing upon entry, with a 15 minute wait for test processing and results.

For contractors serving all other Regional facilities, masking will no longer be a mandatory requirement as of June 27, 2022 but is encouraged when working indoors to protect those who are vulnerable.

We also take this time to remind you that the Region’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy  for Contractors is still in effect and must continue to be adhered to.
