Loyalist Township building inspectors will be following a new inspection protocol given current physical distancing recommendations. Inspectors may not engage in interpersonal contact at sites. Staff will not enter occupied areas of buildings under construction, including residential, industrial, commercial, or institutional buildings.

Staff will also inquire if any persons on the site or related to the site exhibit symptoms of sickness or have become self-isolated; have been to a COVID-19 infected area; or have been in contact with a confirmed case or probable case of COVID-19. If the answer to any of these questions is yes, an inspection will not take place until the site is safe for an inspector to visit.

This policy may be subject to revisions as further protocols are put in place.

Electrical Safety Authority - We have been notified that the ESA is not conducting inspections at this time. To facilitate the occupancy permits that may be required so your clients and residents are not inconvenienced, we will not at this time require the ESA final as usual. We will supply a memo for your electrical contractor to complete, to be required at time of occupancy inspection, with the understanding that we will be requiring an ESA certificate when they become available.
