Freshwater Fish has numerous mitigations in place to address the safety of our employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. These strategies include staggering start times for processing employees to allow for physical distancing in the change rooms and cafeteria, weekly self-screening of all employees, directing staff to not come to work if they are exhibiting cold/flu symptoms and to screen their return to work according to the screening criteria recommended by Manitoba Health. Access to Freshwater’s facilities is closed to the public and all contractors must have an escort to ensure they follow all Freshwater’s COVID-19 prevention protocols. We perform more frequent, intense cleaning and disinfecting of our offices and work locations and practice healthy behaviour including physical distancing and vigilant hand washing while providing increased access to hand and surface sanitizer, and other personal protective equipment, as appropriate to each job. Mandatory face masks are required in all areas of the facility, these areas include hallways, change rooms, meeting rooms, offices, cafeteria and the production floor. Mandatory face shields are required in designated areas.
