Toronto Chinatown Business Improvement Area (CBIA) launches initiative to provide local businesses with wall-mounted hand sanitizing dispensers in the efforts to enhance and reinforce hygienic practices for businesses and visitors in Toronto Chinatown.
In accordance with the practices as recommended by the Toronto Public Health (TPH)’s hand sanitizing standards, businesses in Toronto Chinatown will be entitled to pick up one(1) unit of a wall-mounted hand sanitizing dispenser to be installed in their respective facilities accessible to employees and visitors. In order to ensure the sustainability of this initiative moving forward, business owners could pick up sanitizing refills at supplier price directly at the CBIA office located at 287 Spadina Ave Unit 202, Toronto, ON M5T 2E6.
“Businesses around Toronto Chinatown have been adversely affected by the reduction in tourists and patrons following the latest public health concerns. This initiative is a long-term goal of the CBIA as part of our continuous efforts in enhancing and reinforcing hygienic practices for the entire community in Toronto Chinatown. Safety for the whole community begins with hands sanitizing at all times”, said Tonny Louie, Chair of the CBIA.
Toronto Chinatown is home to over 500 businesses and attracts a large number of visitors to the neighbourhood everyday. The CBIA would like to seize the opportunity to remind the large population of the TPH’s practices “to avoid touching their eyes, nose or mouth without sanitizing or cleaning their hands, and keeping their hands clean through good hygiene practice is one of the most important steps to avoid getting sick and spreading germs”.
