Updates on COVID-19


A Message from the CEO - March 4th, 2024

Dear Residents, Family Members, and Staff:


Recent trends have shown continued decreases in community level transmission of COVID-19, flu and RSV.  While outbreaks can still be expected, we anticipate entering a lower risk period of respiratory illness than we have experienced over the past three months.  


Based on the recent trends and projections, and the advice of Ministry of Long Term Care enhanced masking measures are ending effective Tuesday, March 5, 2024.  

Staff are required to do a point-of-care risk assessment before every resident interaction.  This assessment may necessitate the wearing of a mask in non-outbreak situations. Please note the following:

  • Staff may consider wearing a mask during prolonged direct resident care defined as one-on-one within two metres of an individual for fifteen minutes or longer.

  • 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.


  • We are a mask friendly Home and masks are available at the Home front entrance and employee entrance.

  • All staff may choose to wear a mask at any time they are in the Home.

  • Caregivers and visitors are no longer required to wear a mask, however, it continues to be recommended.

  • 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:

  • Read screening questions posted at entrances of the Home.

  • Individuals are not to enter the Home if they are not feeling well or fail the screening questions.


We continue to build comprehensive IPAC programs and practices including promoting good hand hygiene as the best method of stopping and preventing the spreading of infections.  We encourage residents, staff, and caregivers to get vaccinated, as staying up to date with vaccines is the best way to prevent severe illness. The health and safety of our Residents, and the team members who serve them, is our highest priority.


Garry C. Hopkins, CEO
