Health Unit issues Section 22 Order to business operator

Huron Perth, ON – In follow up to the recent inspection blitz in North Huron, Huron Perth Public Health has issued a Section 22 Order to a business operator. 

Under Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, a medical officer of health can issue an order to “require a person to take or to refrain from taking any action in respect of a communicable disease.”

Last week, HPPH public health inspectors carried out routine inspections. They also focused on requirements under the Reopening Ontario Act, including the proof of vaccination requirement for certain indoor public settings.

As the result of a follow-up investigation into one business, the Section 22 Order was issued.  The Order outlines requirements the operator must follow to ensure compliance with Ontario Regulation 364/20 under the Reopening Ontario Act, and other recommendations made by Huron Perth Public Health.

The Order will remain in place pending compliance with its requirements.
