Do you have to work during the pandemic? Winnipeg labour lawyer lays out options

  Do you have to work during the pandemic? Winnipeg labour lawyer lays out options According to labour lawyer Benjamin Hecht of Pitblado Law, if your workplace isn't doing everything it can to keep you safe, you definitely have options. "Under the workplace safety and health legislation, a worker always has the right to refuse work, but the key tests relate to whether or not they reasonably believe the work or the workplace constitutes a danger," Hecht said. He said the biggest problem employers and employees face is determining whether COVID-19 presents a danger in that workplace. Frontline workers are obviously in a dangerous situation. But not every situation is as clear, he explained.


Dentist appointments are prohibited during confinement, except in an emergency.

Every day, Le Parisien takes action to answer your questions around the coronavirus . Today we are interested in the questioning of "Koc", who asks us if he can still go to his dentist safely.

First of all, remember that going to the dentist is theoretically, like most trips , prohibited since the entry into force of containment on March 17. Dental offices are closed, as recommended by the National Council of the College of Dental Surgeons.

Only a dental emergency allows you to leave your home. You will then need to call your usual dentist, who generally provides a hotline, so that he can redirect you to a duty office.

A personalized information site

In itself, going to a dentist in an emergency is no more or less dangerous than going shopping or jogging, for example. As with every outing, the most important is to respect the barrier gestures (wash your hands regularly, cough in your elbow, etc.) as well as social distancing.

Once taken care of on site, you will necessarily be in close physical contact with the dentist. But he is a healthcare professional who is used to handling and wearing protective medical equipment, such as a mask and gloves. So there is very little risk that it will infect you in case it becomes infected, and vice versa.

If you want more personalized advice on the problems you suffer from and on the procedure to follow, you can go to the site urgency-dentaire.info , launched by the CDF (dental surgeons of France).
