Employees are encouraged to check our COVID-19 webpage and follow the Region's Twitter and Facebook pages for the latest health advice and resources, as well as updates on operational changes, closures and cancellations.
Resources and tools to help staff work from home safely and effectively including links to mindfulness tools / webinars and other mental health resources are available on Vine.
Employees are also encouraged to make use of the Employee and Family Assistance Program which offers a broad range of supports for staff who may be feeling anxious or in need of assistance.
Employees can access this resource by calling toll-free at 1-844-880-9142 or by visiting WorkHealthLife.
All employees are required to complete an Employee Self-Screen for COVID-19 Risk before entering any Niagara Region building.
Employees who have been unable to work because of COVID-19 must complete the Return to Work COVID-19 Screening Tool. This includes employees attending Niagara Region work locations or working from home.
