Preparing for the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
We believe that SUN members should prepare for the potential spread of this virus, and its arrival in their communities. It is important to have conversations with managers and employers about safety precautions, the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) and be familiar with facility procedures well in advance.
SUN members who have questions or concerns about the Novel Coronavirus are asked to contact their Employment Relations Officer at SUN Provincial.
Below are links to information from Canadian and provincial health leaders responding to the Novel Coronavirus. This list will be continuously updated as new information becomes available.
