Updated GM Facility Visitor Procedures


Updated GM Facility Visitor Procedures (as of March 18, 2020)

To protect the health of everyone at our sites, given the coronavirus outbreak’s continued spread, we will now require additional screening of all visitors prior to entry into GM facilities and events.

GM Canada is now observing the Canadian Government’s guidance related to travel. Visitors will be asked if they have “travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days” in addition to the other questions on the health screening questionnaire.

VISITOR SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE – if the answer is “yes” to any of the following questions, access to the facility will be denied and the visitor will be asked to reschedule their meeting or make any arrangements.

  1. Have you been outside of Canada in the last 14 days?
  2. Have you had close contact with or cared for someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days?
  3. Have you experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days (including fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory illness, difficulty breathing)?

The following exemptions apply to healthy people who otherwise meet the criteria outlined in the health screening questionnaire:

  • Truck drivers that shuttle product from the USA to a GM Canada site.
  • Employees that commute daily from the USA to a GM Canada site (except for those who have travelled outside of the United States in the last 14 days).
  • FedEx drivers (attested as a company to following the GM procedure).
