Public Health is recommending that employers postpone the return date of their staff interview due to the current epidemiological situation.
“In the event of an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases resulting from the current fourth wave, as well as the existence of a delta variant in the population, it is more prudent to postpone the gradual return of employees to work. Recently opened environments,” read the press release.
It was also stated that the recommendation would be re-evaluated in early October.
Public health justifies this recommendation because many of the prevalence of previous waves occurred in other places and offices.
“The next few weeks will be marked by the beginning of the school year, indicating an increase in contacts and their unpredictable impact on the epidemiological situation,” one adds.
Public health therefore depends on caution and seeks to minimize the underlying exposure to the virus outbreak.
The Delta variant currently represents more than 50% of cases in Quebec.
