UPDATE from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is working closely with industry partners to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 and taking direction from provincial, Canadian and global health authorities. Ontario officials are actively working with partners in the health care system at the municipal, provincial and federal levels to identify, prevent and control this emerging global health issue.

The risk posed by COVID-19 in Ontario remains low. Canada continues to be a safe travel, meetings and events destination.

We would like to assure you that the seamless operation of events in our Centre and the health and safety of all our visitors and employees remains our top priority.

Increased Preventative Measures

  • Our cleaning services team has increased the disinfection of commonly used surfaces, including escalator handrails and door handles.
  • Extra hand sanitizing stations have also been placed throughout the Centre to encourage everyone to disinfect their hands more frequently.
  • Signs encouraging proper hygiene inside washrooms have been posted.
  • Employees have been reminded to take increased measures to reduce the risk of transmission of the flu and respiratory illness, and to stay at home if they are sick.

Travel Health and Safety

The Government of Canada has implemented additional screening measures in all airports, including Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

The Public Health Agency of Canada is actively monitoring the situation and working with the WHO and other international partners to gather additional information. Please verify travel health recommendations regularly as they may change.
