  • How does the OHSA and the MLTSD fit in?
  • Who are the other players in the COVID-19 universe?
  • Where can I find the most current information on compliance?
  • How do I deal with a positive case in the workplace? Reporting? Where can I get help?

In this session, we will also discuss terminology and how it varies across different resources, such as the difference between PPE and Source Control masking. Do they both mean the same thing?
