Masking Requirements

  • In response to a recent visit from the Ministry of Long-Term Care, there will be changes to current masking requirements.  
  • In addition to mandatory masking on all resident care units, staff, students, volunteers and support workers must wear a mask for all resident activities throughout our home. This includes portering residents off the unit, all therapeutic and creative arts programs, church service and when a Point-of-Care Risk Assessment (PCRA) determines it is necessary to be masked.  
  • This change comes into effect tomorrow – Tuesday, December 19, 2023. 
  • Masking is not required in administrative and staff-only areas including the Cafeteria and Deborah's Gift Boutique.
  • Masks will be conveniently available at various locations throughout our home. 
  • We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we adapt our safety measures in accordance with guidelines from the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
  • If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact your supervisor or manager.
