Statement on Health Services Appeal, Review Board decision

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—On June 12, 2020, the Health Services Appeal and Review Board issued its ruling on the Haldimand Norfolk Health Unit’s section 22 order regarding the self-isolation of migrant farm workers.

The Board upheld all aspects of the order itself, specifically that each farmer must submit a self-isolation plan to the Health Unit.

However, the Board removed the requirement in the Self-Isolation Plan Checklist that limits the number of workers self-isolating in a bunkhouse to a maximum of three, and indicated that each bunkhouse would instead have to be evaluated individually to determine the appropriate number of workers able to self-isolate.
