, the following masking requirements will be put into place:



  • As the first defense against the transmission of respiratory viruses, all staff are required to perform a point-of-care assessment (PCRA) before any Resident interaction and task to determine if there is a risk of exposure to any infectious agent and then determine the appropriate IPAC measure/precautions to be taken when entering a Resident room.

  • Following respiratory illness staff may return to work 24 hours and are symptom free with no fever and 48 hours if experiencing enteric symptoms but will be required to mask for 10 days.

  • All staff must have the knowledge, skill and training to perform a PCRA.

  • Resident care staff can choose to wear a mask during prolonged direct Resident care if they are within 2 meters of the Resident for 15 minutes or longer.

  • Masks are not required in administrative offices and staff only areas. All Staff may also choose to wear a mask (provided by the Home, employee or front entrance) at any time they are in the Home.

  • The Resident and or POA may also request that staff wear a mask during their care as per the Resident Bill of Rights.

Screening Requirements for staff, students, visitors, and care givers:

It continues to be important that Residents, family, visitors and staff adhere to Public Health measures, including good hand hygiene as the best method of stopping and preventing the spreading of infections.
