British Columbia's Restart Plan: Step 1

This past week the government introduced the first step in the loosening of restrictions related to COVID-19 control. This step was not taken lightly – at least 60% of the 18+ population needed to be vaccinated with dose 1, along with stable case counts and hospitalizations. Getting vaccinated remains the most important tool supporting the restart plan. Under Step 1, here are some new things you can do:

Visitation Guideline - Harmony Court Care Centre

As we continue to follow all public health measures, we want to take the time to remind you of some guidelines that are still in place.

Before you visit:

  • Even the slightest symptom could be COVID-19. Be honest with how you are feeling - if you’re questioning a symptom, play it safe and stay home.
  • If you are taking a resident on an outing, please remember to follow all public health measures like restrictions on gathering indoors. These are not dependent on vaccination status.
  • Make sure you use all appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during your visit and practice physical distancing.
  • Given the increased risk around eating and drinking – no outside food or beverages are allowed during your indoor visits.

Virtual Visits

As provincial COVID-19 cases continue to rise, we ask that all visitors review and consider their own need to visit their loved ones in person. We encourage friends and family to take advantage of our virtual and window visits.

To book a virtual visit and window visits with your loved one, contact hcrecreation@agecare.ca or (604) 527-3328 between 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

Recreation & Activities

Our recreation team is working hard to create engaging activities that enrich the mind, body and spirit. We are taking a measured, phased approach to recreation activities. Each week we will be reassessing how these are going and make any adjustments that may be required.

In both Harmony Court Estate (Independent Living) and the Care Centre (Long Term Care), we are cohorting residents into groups. They may enjoy the activities with the same residents each time. All cohort recreation programs will involve no touching of each other or shared objects.

During all interactions, staff continue to practice exceptional hand hygiene, wear Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), and are using extreme diligence in enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
