Workers for the City of Thunder Bay deemed as non-essential operations are still being paid even though they’re not at work.
Last week, the city stated it would be ceasing all non-essential services as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Non-essential staff would be deployed where needed or would stay home.

Whether or not they would eventually be laid off is still unknown.
