Public health officials know there is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for some Canadians:
– aged 65 and over
– with compromised immune systems
– with underlying medical conditions
If you fall into one of these categories, we urge you to speak to your manager and work from home if able to, or if unable to telework, to submit “other leave with pay,” (leave code 699). At this time, public health officials have indicated there is insufficient evidence to say that pregnant women are at greater risk, however we encourage our pregnant employees to consult their health care providers and talk to their managers about working from home.
If you have questions regarding the RCMP’s official and current procedures regarding COVID-19 and its various issues, please ensure you consult the “COVID-19 – Addressing Important Topics for Employees” page on the Infoweb. If you do not have access to the Infoweb, please reach out to your manager or check the RCMP’s public website for information. If you have specific workplace concerns that are not being addressed by management, don’t forget to contact your steward or Regional Chairperson for assistance.
