Bruce Power statement regarding actions taken on COVID-19 outbreak

Bruce Power has been monitoring developments around the COVID-19 pandemic and the response from health agencies in Canada and worldwide. We are continuing to conduct our daily operations to safely provide Ontario’s residents and businesses with a reliable source of electricity.

The safety of our plants, our employees and our communities is our number one priority and we have taken a number of proactive measures including:

  • We created a response team earlier this week to develop plans to guide the company, our employees and everyone working on Bruce Power premises through the COVID-19 outbreak
  • We are communicating frequently with our employees with the latest developments on COVID-19 and the steps they need to take if they or a family member think they may have the virus.
  • We have also increased communications with our workers to provide guidance for travel, social distancing, self-isolation and encouraging electronic meetings where possible
  • As announced earlier, we have temporarily closed the Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre and are cancelling the March Break Program at the centre.
  • While employees in our Toronto office have been asked to work from home, all other employees are reporting to work as normal until further notice.
  • Hand-sanitizer stations have been installed throughout our facilities and more frequent cleaning of common touch surfaces has been implemented across site for items such as: turnstiles, doorways, monitors and time clocks.
  • Access to the Bruce Power site and offsite building locations have been restricted to essential visitors only and we have implemented access restriction to the Main Control Rooms at Bruce A and Bruce B to increase social distancing and interactions with control room staff.

We will continue to take the necessary measures to make everyone visiting our premises safe and healthy.
