Coronavirus (COVID-19): Staff Updates

Alongside information being shared directly with staff at the community level, this page was created to ensure our staff and valued partners have up-to-date information, feel well informed and equipped to navigate through the changing COVID-19 situation.

Our Priorities
  1. Protect our residents, families, staff and valued partners.

  2. Engage communities to protect individuals who are most at risk of severe illness; the elderly and those that are chronically ill.

  3. Manage fears as new cases are identified in Canada; continue to provide updates to staff and valued partners. Keep staff informed regularly through Site Operations meetings.

  4. Monitor staff illnesses and determine potential for COVID-19.

  5. Monitor Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) storage, and management practices.

  6. Increase cleaning and disinfecting of high touch surfaces.
