Turner Moore + COVID-19 Pandemic Response:
We’re Here For You

TM+ Covid-19 Response

Like all of you, the fast-moving coronavirus pandemic is disrupting our individual and business clients’ lives and business operations in significant ways.

To help you stay resilient during this challenging time, and in addition to the response and assistance from all levels of government unfolding in ‘real-time’, all local Turner Moore partners and offices are fully accessible during this emergency response period for any questions you may need answered as you navigate the uncertainties you, your family or your business may be facing.

In addition to being available for phone consultation if/when you need that support, check your inbox as we are issuing regular update communications covering developments and implications of the pandemic on businesses and individuals.

Please contact your local Turner Moore office using the links below.

For our part, we are maintaining an agile working environment, which includes continuity plans for client work, while encouraging our distributed team to work from home and minimise unnecessary travel.

We’re all in this together.

Important Notice Re: COVID-19

Business owners should be taking precautions during this COVID-19 pandemic to protect their customers, employees and themselves. Communication is incredibly important during this time. Please communicate your expectations with your employees and encourage employees to discuss potential issues with you. All employers are strongly encouraged to make virtual work arrangements for their employees wherever possible. This will allow those employees the opportunity to limit their daily interactions, care for their children and self isolate.

If working from home is not an option, space should be kept between all staff (at least 2 meters).

Some precautions your business should adopt:

  • Employees who are feeling unwell and have respiratory symptoms (coughing, runny nose) and HAVE NOT travelled, should stay home and self isolate until 24 hours after their last symptom.
  • Employees RETURNING from international travel (including the United States) MUST self isolate for 14 days from the day they arrived back in Canada.
  • Employees who HAVE RETURNED to Canada from outside of the country in the last 14 days, which would make for a return date of March 3rd or later, MUST self isolate for 14 days from the day they arrived back into Canada. See the ‘Information for Travellers‘ page for more details.
  • Encourage hand washing and use of hand sanitizers for everyone.
  • Perform routine cleaning focusing on surfaces that are more likely to be touched by employees and customers. Sufficient routine cleaning consists of using soap and water followed by a disinfectant with a DIN number.
  • Advise customers who are feeling unwell and have respiratory symptoms (coughing, runny nose) or who have travelled internationally and are self isolating, to reschedule appointments to when they are feeling better or past their self isolation date.
  • Practice social distancing;
    • have customers maintain a distance of at least 2 metres (6ft) away from each other, and other employees, when waiting in line,
    • encourage waiting customers to leave and wait in their vehicles instead of sitting at tables for take out food,
    • create physical lines or barriers for customers to stand behind or away from each other,
    • distance workers from one another in their workspace,
    • do not shake hands, hug or come into close contact with your customers or other employees.
