Over 500 workplaces, such as big-box stores, will also be inspected in Toronto, Ottawa, and Peel — all of which have been identified as COVID-19 hotspots.

Inspectors will ensure that all businesses are following COVID-19 protocols, such as maintaining physical distancing, practicing proper mask and PPE usage, sticking to occupancy limits, and more. 

Any businesses found to be non-compliant with COVID-19 protocols could face fines of up to $1,000.
